Suskwa River Steelhead Trout: The 1977 Inventory, Creel Survey and Life History Characteristics Study Leading to the Removal of a Barrier on Harold-Price Creek

The 1977 aspect of the Suskwa River project began in July and continued until freeze-up in November. Fish were sampled either with "Gees" traps or by angling. The inventory crew switched to a casual creel survey and an adult steelhead tagging program during the sport fishery beginning in late August. The creel survey was used as a crude estimator of steelhead harvest, pre-enhancement. Scale samples were collected and lengths, weights, and sex were determined from both crew and sports angler-caught steelhead.
