We sampled each site on Larkin Fork once, during normal stream flow, maximum
depth about a meter. We seined along a hundred meter stretch of each stream
for about one and a half hours. Especially-in-the upstream site we found
both high species richness and lots of individuals of most species. The last
reported collection of flame chubs-in-the upstream site was in November 1980
(8 individuals found),-in-the downstream site in November 1999 (1 individual
found). Our results may show an unfortunate trend, I hope I'm wrong.
