Abstract:In the agricultural Midwest, stream fisheries have long suffered from habitat degradation due to inappropriate stream and land management practices (Karr et al., 1985; Trautman, 1981). Channelization, riparian clearing, and disruption of the normal hydrograph have acted in concert to degrade the environment of both sport and nongame fishes (Smith, 1971; Roseboom and Russell, 1985). The single most pervasive impact, sedimentation, exacts a heavy toll on those species requiring coarse substrate (i.e., gravel, cobble, and/or boulders) to carry out their life functions (Judy et al.; 1984, Paragamiah, 1991).
