Summaries of The Moricetown Falls Steelhead and Coho Release Project

Steelhead and coho returning to the Bulkley and Morice rivers pass through Moricetown between late July and late September. The "early" component of this steelhead run, and the entire upper-Bulkley and Morice River coho runs, are severely depressed as a result of interception in mixed stock commercial fisheries from Southeast Alaska to the mouth of the Skeena River. These early run timing steelhead and coho pass Moricetown between late July and late August. The objectives of this project were to increase spawning escapement of these depressed runs of steelhead and coho and to give more insight to the run timing and migration of these stocks.
