Abstract A comprehensive, multi-component in-stream flow methodology was developed and field tested in the Tongue River in southeastern Montana. The methodology incorporates a sensitivity for the flow requirements of a wide variety of in-stream uses, and the flexibility to accommodate seasonal and subseasonal changes in the flow requirements for different uses. In-stream flow requirements were determined by additive independent methodologies developed for: (1) Fisheries; including spawning; rearing and food production; (2) sediment transport; (3) mitigation of adverse impacts of ice; and (4) evapotranspiration losses. Consideration of a single in-stream flow requirement is inadequate since flow requirements for each use varied throughout the year. The methodology can be an effective water management tool.
