Abstract: The Mesilinka River is one of several large, northern oligotrophic streams inhabited by a migratory and resident fish and affected by the construction of the Williston Reservoir. Creation of the reservoir, the provinceís largest, resulted in the flooding of the lowermost and most productive reaches of several streams, thus altering the habitat of fish species, including those valued for sportfishing. The objective of the 1992-93 Mesilinka River study was to assess the response of the fish community to whole-river fertilization, and the riverís potential to support a destination sport fishery. The Mesilinka River mainstem (within three reaches, 7-8 km each) and nursery tributaries were therefore sampled for water flows, water temperature and chemistry, periphyton, benthic invertebrates and fish species. An external control, the Nation River was also sampled but to a lesser degree. The 1992-93 results indicated the Mesilinka River has suitable biophysical characteristics to proceed with fertilization. Mean mont
