What would we measure to determine whether a stream meets the requirements of a Trout Stock Fishery, that is, what specific standards must be met?
For period February 15 to July 31 of any year, minimum daily average of 6.0 mg/l; minimum 5.0 mg/l. For remainder of year, minimum daily average of 5.0 mg/l; minimum 4.0 mg/l
Four-day average 0.011 mg/l; 1 hr average 0.019 mg/l
500 mg/l as a monthly average value; maximum 750 mg/l
Minimum 20 mg/l as CaCO3, except where natural conditions are less. Where discharges are to waters with 20 mg/l or less alkalinity, the discharge should not further reduce the alkalinity of the receiving stream.
Table below lists very specific temperature requirements over course of the year. Water temperature should not exceed Max Temp at any time during given period.
