  • A Fisheries Investigation of the Previously Un-Surveyed Little Bear River

    • Authors: Christian Smith
      Abstract: To evaluate the effects of human impacts on the composition and abundances of fishes on the Little Bear River, the 2012 Aquatic Ecology Practicum class conducted backpack electrofishing surveys in four sites of the river on 29 September and 4 October 2012. At these sites, species composition, biomass, and abundances were documented utilizing 2-pass electrofishing. In total, ten species were captured, with native species being represented by Bonneville cutthroat trout (Oncoryhnchus clarki Utah) and mottled sculpin (Cottus bairdii). Mottled sculpin comprised the majority of native fish captured (n= 241), while brown trout accounted for the majority of nonnatives (n= 129). Brown trout abundance was highest at the most upstream site (Station 2) and decreased going down the longitudinal gradient. Regression analysis revealed that larger average pebble size at Station 2 could be a factor in determining the observed higher brown trout abundance at this site, although the small sample size warrants further investigation. At the lowest site (Station 11) with poor water quality, only introduced species were present: green sunfish (Lepomis cyanellus), common carp (Cyprinus carpio), largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) and sand shiner (Notropis stramineus). Recommendations for future fisheries investigations on the Little Bear River include the sampling of additional sites, inclusion of more passes per site, and additional invertebrate and pebble sampling. Management recommendations include assessment of the potential value of a fisheries management program on the Little Bear River.

  • Benthic Invertebrate Composition along the Little Bear River Continuum

    • Authors: Jared Baker et al.
      Abstract: Benthic invertebrates were sampled at four stations along the Little Bear River continuum: Station 2 in the mountainous headwaters, at Station 4 in the transition area to the lowland valley, at Station 7 below Hyrum Reservoir, and at Station 11 in the low-gradient agricultural area near where the river flows into Cutler Reservoir wetland. At each station samples were collected with sweep nets in each of the habitats, with an effort made to sample each type of habitat in proportion to its abundance. Ethanol-preserved samples were counted utilizing 30X compound microscopes, with 2 or more students providing counts and taxa identifications for the invertebrates from each Station. The invertebrates identified from each station are shown in Table 1. A ratio of the combined counts of clean-water taxa (Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Tricoptera) and all other taxa was calculated for each station. This ratio can provide insight on water quality, but with the level of taxonomy used in the class exercise, should be interpreted cautiously.

  • Anthropogenically Altered Land and its Effect on δ15N Values in
           Periphyton on a Fourth Order Stream in Utah’s Cache Valley

    • Authors: Chance Broderius
      Abstract: The Little Bear River is a tributary to the Bear River that drains the south end of the Cache Valley in Northern Utah. The upper elevations are more pristine and are made up of mostly forested mountainous terrain with some grazing activity. The lower elevations are comprised of low gradient agricultural and urban parcels. Anthropogenically influenced landscapes can result in higher nitrogen inputs to streams, and these increases are often marked by an increase in the heavy-nitrogen isotope, δ15N. This study looked at the concentration of δ15N in periphyton on the river bed. These concentrations were then compared to anthropogenic land use in the surrounding watershed. δ15N values in the periphyton were significantly correlated with increasing percentages of anthropogenically affected land use in the Little Bear River watershed. It is likely that anthropogenic land uses (manure fertilization and wastewater treatment) caused the enrichment in δ15N concentrations.

  • Algal Nutrient Limitation throughout the Little Bear River Watershed

    • Authors: Jared Baker
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to use a 5 day bioassay experiment to assess whether nitrogen or phosphorus limited the growth of algae in the Little Bear River watershed. Four sites were sampled along the river in September 2012. The locations of the sites were south of Avon (Station 2), near Paradise, UT (Station 6), downstream of Hyrum Reservoir (Station 7), and downstream of the Waste Water Treatment Facility in Wellsville (Station 10). Chlorophyll a analysis was conducted prior to, after 2.5 days, and at the conclusion of the 5 days. Varying combinations of nitrogen and phosphorus were added to water samples from each site and these were incubated in 125-ml flasks with 150 uM m-2 lighting and at 15°C. ANOVA was used to determine nutrient limitations within samples. Chlorophyll concentrations measured at the conclusion of the experiment indicated that both nitrogen and phosphorus limited algal growth at Stations 2 and 10 while phosphorus alone was limiting at Stations 6 and 7.

  • Periphyton and Phytoplankton Chlorophyll a Levels in the Little Bear River
           and Hyrum Reservoir, Utah

    • Authors: Katie Fisher
      Abstract: This study was conducted to assess the applicability of the River Continuum and Serial Discontinuity Concepts to the Little Bear River, using chlorophyll a values along the gradient of the river and within Hyrum Reservoir. Periphyton was analyzed from seven sites and phytoplankton from nine sites (including Hyrum Reservoir) in September 2012. The lower parts of the Little Bear River is heavily influenced by agricultural and anthropogenic sources of nutrients and other pollution, creating poor water quality in its lower reaches. Periphyton levels in the river increased along the gradient, peaking just below Hyrum reservoir, and then decreased with distance downstream. Phytoplankton chlorophyll a concentrations increased significantly with distance downstream, with concentrations near 1.5 μg L-1 in the headwaters and 5 μg L-1 in the slow-moving valley sections. On an aerial basis, chlorophyll in the periphyton community overwhelmingly dominated (>98 percent) the total chlorophyll levels. Within the phytoplankton continuum, there was, however, a drop below Hyrum Reservoir. Furthermore, there was a significant positive relationship between the total phosphorous concentrations and phytoplankton levels. Periphyton levels, however, were not correlated with phosphorus concentrations. The chlorophyll a levels found suggest that high levels of phosphorus contribute to higher levels of algal chlorophyll a. Although these levels were not indicative of poor water quality, mitigation of nutrient sources in the valley would likely create more uniform chlorophyll a levels down the gradient of the LBR.

  • Anthropogenic Impacts on the Longitudinal Gradient of Nutrients in the
           Little Bear River

    • Authors: Jason Fuller
      Abstract: I measured the anthropogenic impacts from land use on nutrient concentrations along the Little Bear River in Cache Valley, Utah. Water samples from twelve stations along the Little Bear River were collected and analyzed using an auto analyzer in order to determine conductivity and concentrations of total nitrogen, total phosphorus, soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP), ammonia (NH3), and nitrate (NO3-). Samples were collected at stations thought to reveal anthropogenically influenced nutrient loading. Some of the anthropogenic land usages that potentially impact the nutrient concentrations include agricultural land use, urban land use, Hyrum Reservoir, the Trout of Paradise fishing reserve located near the town of Paradise, and the Wellsville Wastewater Treatment Plant. Specific conductivity measurements indicated a 172 percent increase in ions from the headwaters to the lowest site sampled, near the confluence with Cutler Reservoir. My study indicated that total nitrogen was significantly increased by anthropogenic land use, with nitrate increasing from 115 μg N L-1 in the headwaters to 1260 μg N L-1 in the lowland agricultural areas. Total phosphorus (TP) did not appear to be influenced by anthropogenic land use above Hyrum Reservoir: However, below the reservoir concentrations reached 60-75 μg P L-1, above Utah threshold criteria of 50 μg L-1. Total nitrogen : total phosphorus rations indicated that phosphorus was potentially the limiting nutrient at three of the twelve stations including the Trout of Paradise fishing reserve. The dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN): TP ratio indicated that phosphorus was the limiting nutrient at each of the stations except Station 8, which is located below Hyrum Reservoir. These findings highlight the influence of anthropogenic land use on the Little Bear River, within the framework of the Serial Discontinuity Hypothesis (Ward and Stanford, 1995).

  • Temperature and Discharge on a Highly Altered Stream in Utah's Cache
           Valley

    • Authors: Andy Pappas
      Abstract: To study the River Continuum Concept (RCC) and the Serial Discontinuity Hypothesis (SDH), I looked at temperature and discharge changes along 52 km of the Little Bear River in Cache Valley, Utah. The Little Bear River is a fourth order stream with one major reservoir, a number of irrigation diversions, and one major tributary, the East Fork of the Little Bear River. Discharge data was collected at six sites on 29 September 2012 and temperature data was collected hourly at eleven sites from 1 October to 20 October 2012. Discharge and temperature both increased as elevation declined to Hyrum Reservoir. After which point, temperature increased slightly and discharge dropped sharply for a period and then returned to similar patterns occurring above the reservoir. In addition to the data collected during our sampling efforts, a long-term temperature dataset available from the Internet was used to observe seasonal temperature changes. While seasonal temperature patterns were variable above the reservoir, the site below Hyrum Reservoir exhibited the strongest increase in temperature from winter lows to summer highs.

  • A Profile of the Physical Attributes of the Little Bear River in the
           Context of the Serial Discontinuity Concept

    • Authors: Marc Weston
      Abstract: To study the Little Bear River’s physical characteristics in the context of the serial discontinuity concept, sites were sampled along a continuum from the headwaters to 51 km downstream, near where the Little Bear River flows into Cutler Reservoir. Samples were collected in September 2012 at base flow. To estimate sediment sizes along the transect pebble counts were conducted at six sites and where possible pebble counts were done in both pools and riffles. Sediment sizes showed a decrease in median size (D50 ) of 45 mm at the upper station to the lower station where the substrate was a mixture of sand and silt. An elevation gradient profile measured with ArcGIS demonstrated a significant positive correlation between elevation and substrate size. Sinuosity was measured using ArcGIS and showed an increasing trend from the upper reaches to the lower reaches, but the lower valley agricultural areas had remnants of levees, indicating that the river was not following its natural channel.

  • Executive Summary : A River Continuum Analysis of an
           Anthropenically-Impacted System : The Little Bear River, Utah

    • Authors: Nick Heredia
      Abstract: In September 2012 the Aquatic Ecology Practicum class from Utah State University studied the 51km river continuum of the Little Bear River located in northern Utah (Figure 1). The relatively pristine headwaters of the river begin in the Wasatch Mountain Range at an altitude of 1800 m. The river flows northward into Cache Valley where it terminates in Cutler Reservoir (1345 m elevation). Agricultural development and urbanization have modified the natural terrain and chemical characteristics of the river, and Hyrum Reservoir, located midway along the gradient causes a discontinuity in river processes. The results from analyses of stream condition indicators from up to eleven stations along the gradient were interpreted within the context of the River Continuum Concept (Vannote et al. 1980) and the Serial Discontinuity Hypothesis (Ward and Stanford 1983).
