Lower Cedar Alcoves 2013

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

Alcoves are small embayments found along a river's edge. They are found at the downstream end of gravel bars, tributary confluences, and other localized channel expansions. Alcoves generally have low velocities because they are protected from the main current, though they may "wash out" at higher flows. Alcoves are a type of off-channel habitat that are used by juvenile salmon for rearing.
