Redband Trends (Draft)

Upper Snake Geographic Unit

Historical Stream Miles Occupied: 964

For the Upper Snake Geographic Unit, researchers have estimated that 964 miles of streams are occupied by redband trout in the geographic unit.

Researchers have found that redband trout are widespread and abundant in Idaho. Unfortunately, trends across time do not exist for the populations.

Limiting factors throughout the geographic unit include water quality, habitat degradation, water quantity (flows), connectivity, and non-native fish species.
