Introduction Wyoming streams and rivers provide many important benefits including serving as sources of water for out-of-stream uses.

Instream flow designation was important because it meant for the first time in the State's history, water could be protected in streams for fish. Instream flows benefit the 41% of Wyoming residents who fish annually. in Wyoming may be appropriated for instream flows to maintain or improve existing fisheries and declared a beneficial use”.

During low flows small particles that are available on the stream bed are moved (Phase I). Bedload movement is supply-limited. Phase II occurs at higher flows after the armor layer has been disturbed and a whole range of particle sizes is being transported. WWRC Evaluation of Flow Duration Analysis to Establish Winter Instream Flow Standards for Wyoming Trout Streams.

Abstract The purpose of this project was to assess the use of hydrologic data and flow duration analysis in the establishment of winter instream flow standards for trout streams in Wyoming. The agency says streams and rivers where spring Chinook hold and stage through the summer are experiencing lower-than-normal stream flows.

Low stream flows decrease holding and staging refuges and.

This beaver is the largest rodent in North America and competes with its Eurasian counterpart, the European beaver, for being the second-largest in the world, both following the South American European species is slightly larger on average but the American has a larger known maximum size.

Adults usually weigh from 11 to 32 kg (24 to 71 lb), with 20 kg (44 lb) being Class: Mammalia. The June peak flows of 15, ft³/s at Brady ft³/s near Grand Island were exceeded only four times sinceand had not been exceeded since Streamflows at the times of the surveys were low at Brady in andbut were above median October flow (table 1) at Grand Island.
