ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Birch Creek in the Yukon Territory. It is a moderately swift, shallow stream that begins a mile above its confluence with Twelvemile Creek. The river's first 9 miles is narrow, winding and sometimes shallow. But within the next 24 miles, located between Harrington Fork and Clums Fork, the stream widens and increased its depth to an average of 2 to 6 feet. The stream is characterized by short rapids and exposed gravel bars. The average gradient of the stream's first 113 miles is 13 feet per mile and gradually lessens and by mile 126 it averages at 2 feet per mile.
