ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role of streamside forests in the survival of fishes including trout in the rivers and streams. It reports that the forests control and stabilize the stream temperature to optimize the survivorship of fishes, by regulating solar exposure of the water. The forests provide a suitable habitat structure for trouts by adding large woody debris to the streams, and are also responsible for the origin of insects that act as a food base for the fishes.
