Comments
General Comments: 
Two main meadow sections connected by riparian stringer. Some incision and bank instability within the stringer. Inset floodplain within the riparian stringer. Lots of fish including brook and rainbow trout. Channel is confined to the eastern edge of the meadow. Meadow surface was very wet.
