From ‘trout bum’ to PhD; ISU prof solves resource managers’ quandaries

Posted in General, People, Academics, Research, Featured by taylandy on the July 2nd, 2007

Idaho State University mathematics associate professor Robert Van Kirk, PhD, used to fly-fish as much as 150 days a year or so when he worked seasonally from 1981 to 1987 at Henry’s Fork Anglers in Last Chance, Idaho. He extensively fished Idaho’s famous Henry’s and South Forks of the Snake River and surrounding waters.

Now Van Kirk, 44, is lucky to fish 150 hours a year, but that hasn’t diminished his devotion to these fisheries. His work as a mathematician potentially affects every angler who wets a line in the South Fork of the Snake River below Palisades Reservoir and could continue to do so for years to come. Additionally, his work analyzing the effect of selenium on the trout populations of the Blackfoot and Salt Rivers, which are part of the Snake River drainage, drew widespread national and international publicity earlier this year. He also has completed numerous studies on the Henry’s Fork. (more…)
