The following study, running from July 12 through August 14, 1965, was carried out as one phase of the Student Conservation Program at Jackson Hole Research Station, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. In conjuction with a long-term ecolgy study of Snake River native trout, to be carried on at the Research Station, this small research project attempts a superficial survey of the planktonic, benthic, and littoral organisms in the Oxbow. Little is known about limnological and biological relations in the waters of the Oxbow, nor the extent to which it is visited or occupied by stream fishes. Combined with further research and data collection, it is hoped that it will be useful in assessing the Oxbow's value as a food source and refuge for trout. Project Number 138.
