Juvenile Coho Salmon and Steelhead Assessment of Lower Toboggan Creek, September - November, 1998

Juvenile sampling and habitat assessment was conducted in the lower three kilometers of Toboggan Creek from September to November, 1998. The lower two kilometers of the stream is of lower habitat quality (higher gradient, greater velocity, little cover) than the upper kilometer. Population estimates were made at three of the four trap sites and extrapolated to the upper one kilometer for coho and steelhead to yield a rough estimate of 53,900 juveniles. Coho present comprised of two age classes and steelhead comprised of three. Limitations of population estimations are discussed, and recommendations for future sampling is provided.
