Abstract

The anadromous Salmo clarki clarki is found in most coastal streams from SE Alaska to N California. Optimum temperature for incubating is 10-11°C and eggs hatch in 28-40 days. Optimum temperature for juveniles is 15°C and ability to swim is lost at c28°C. Adults prefer fairly slow-moving water with plenty of cover. Spawning occurs in small diameter gravel. Fish may return from saltwater to spawn several times. -from Authors
