Many trees creating a lot of foliage cover (shady). Many leaves on the ground and stream. A few broken branches in stream. Many small/medium rocks, some larger boulders.
Surrounding Development or Land Use:
Do you see any pipes entering into the river?:
Is there a water treatment plant upstream?:
The banks on the edge of the stream are eroded, which can lead to more particles being deposited into the water. There is a slight current that can transport nutrients throughout the stream. There is also a lot of tree cover tat helps to keep the temperature down, which can increase dissolved oxygen content.
