Management Implications of Summer Habitat Characteristics of Juvenile Steelhead Trout (Salmo gairdneri) in the Big Qualicum River Pearlstone, P. S. M.

Abstract: During summer, most age 0 steelhead in the Big Qualicum River inhabited areas over gravel (1-10 cm diameter) and at a mean depth of 30 cm, with no overhead cover. Most age 1+ fish resided over large gravel and cobble (5-20 cm diameter), at a mean depth of 53 cm, and in areas of heavy surface cover. Both ages avoided debris substrates and chose a focal point velocity of ca. 25 cm/sec. The relatively low density and more rigid habitat requirements of age 1+ steelhead indicate that management efforts in habitat improvement should be directed awards increasing prime habitat for this age group. Potential techniques are: (1) creation of 'clean, stable log placements, (2) creation of white water and tail area, and to a lesser extent (3) creation of artificial bank cover.
