Samples of water, bottom sediment, bank soil, and upland soil from nine stations on the Cache la Poudre River, Colorado, from Poudre Lake (elevation 10,752 feet) in Rocky Mountain National Park to a point near its confluence with the South Platte River near Greeley, Colorado, on the Great Plains were examined for fungal populations. A total of 128 species of fungi were recovered on four types of bait, agar, and liquid media. While human, animal, and plant pathogenic fungi were present, species found were of wide-spread occurrence and no serious involvement was noted. If streams such as this continue to receive organic enrichment, increasing loads of potentially pathogenic fungi possibly may be found.
