Area North Fork Garcia
Topic Temperature: FWA Main Garcia River at Connor Hole 1995-2001
Caption:  This chart plots floating weekly average temperature of the Garcia River at Connor Hole for the years 1995-2001. This mainstem location is included in the North Fork sub-basin because of the Calwater boundary that includes the main Garcia below the North Fork. Floating weekly average temperatures exceeded 16.8 degrees Celsius during portions of all seven years measured. Temperatures in the years 1999-2001 were slightly lower than previous years, possibly due to riparian recovery below the North Fork. Welsh et al. (2001) found that coho are not likely to persist where maximum floating weekly average temperature (MWAT) exceeds 16.8C. See InfoLinks for more information.
