The purpose of this study was to review the literature on Dolly Varden char (Salvelinus malma) and Yellowstone cutthroat trout (Salmo clarki lewisi) spawning and rearing habitat in streams so as to advise regions, sections, other government agencies, and the public as regards habitat restoration and/or improvement alternatives. The objective was to distinguish criteria and document the range of characteristics for Dolly Varden and Yellowstone cutthroat habitat in natural allopatry and in sympatry with each other and/or the following species: Rainbow and Steelhead Trout (Salmo gairdneri), Brown Trout (S. trutta), Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), Arctic Grayling ( Thymallus arcticus), Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), Chinook Salmon (O. tshawytscha).
