PROJECT DETAILS

In conjunction with the Mershon Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the RRRC purchased seven data loggers that record river water temperature and added them to those already owned by the Mershon Chapter.  The data loggers were placed in the Rifle River and various feeder streams in June 2017 and retrieved in September 2017. 

The temperatures recorded from the submerged data-loggers was processed and analyzed by Kristin Thomas of Trout Unlimited.
