A silt covered gravel bed

A watercolor picture of the layers of a streambed.  Yellow sand on the bottom is overlain with a layer of brown dirt (silt), a layer of gray boulders, and a small blue stream.

Weak flows in a depleted river deposit fine silt that clogs and covers the stream gravel where salmon nest.
