An Assessment of Four Upper Fraser River Chinook Salmon Sport Fisheries, 1986

Microform - 1988
Rate this:
The retention of chinook salmon adults in Fraser River system sport fisheries was eliminated in 1980 in response to escapment declines. By 1986, improved escapements permitted the reopening of sport fisheries for chinook adults in the Bowron, Clearwater, Quesnel and Shuswap rivers. Each fishery was evaluated using either a roving or a hybrid on-site survey. This report describes the study design and field procedures and documents the results of the 1986 sport fishery studies. The report presents estimates of angler effort, harvest and release by species and mark type, and angler characteristics, concluding with a discussion of results and recommendations for changes in the management of future fisheries.
