AbstractWater chemistry (carbon dioxide, pH, alkalinity, hardness, and turbidity) and physical habitat (depth, velocity and substrate) change gradually on the Little Colorado River, Arizona, downstream from Blue Springs (river kilometer 11.40 to 21.06). Fish distribution is correlated with changes in water chemistry and physical habitat. Monthly trends in water chemistry and physical habitat depended upon seasonal conditions: summer rain runoff (July and September 1992), spring runoff (April 1993), and base flow (June and July 1993).
