Alder Canyon COA

Alder Creek is managed for self-sustaining native fish populations, including Little Colorado spinedace, bluehead sucker, and speckled dace. No non-native fish threats exist in this management unit. A neighboring tributary, West Chevelon Creek, is managed in a similar fashion. Reintroductions to establish these species may be required.
