Tributary confluences are dynamic thermal refuges for a juvenile salmonid in a warming river network

Terrance Wang, Suzanne Kelson, George Greer, Sally Thompson & Stephanie Carlson
As rivers warm, cold-water fish species may alleviate thermal stress by moving into localized thermal refuges such as cold-water plumes created by cool tributary inflows. We quantified use of two tributary confluence plumes by juvenile steelhead, Oncorhynchus mykiss, throughout the summer, including how trout positioned themselves in relation to temperature within confluence plumes. At two confluences, Cedar and Elder creeks, along the South Fork Eel River, California, USA, we monitored temperatures using in-situ logger grids...
