This report documents the initial studies of Sowaqua Creek that were undertaken during 1977. The studies involved determination of habitat types, physical characteristics (water temperatures, discharges, gradient, obstructions to fish passage), species of fish present, age class distributions and age specific population estimates of rainbow trout (steelhead). The objective was to determine the steelhead production capabilities and factors limiting present production, and to investigate the likelihood of colonization as a possible future enhancement project.
