Zymoetz River Steelhead Trout: A Progress Report on the Zymoetz River Enhancement Program; Specifically the Diversion of Serb Creek

Steelhead trout are angled from the Zymoetz River, (locally known as the "Copper") near the City of Terrace on the west coast of British Columbia. The "Copper" was labeled as an "Everyman's River" by Pinsent and Chudyk. Recent studies (Imbleau M.S. 1974; Chudyk M.S. 1978) have shown that despite increased regulation, both steelhead stocks and the "Everyman" concept are fading. Contributing to the decline of Zymoetz steelhead are the commercial fishery, the Indian fishery, the sport fishery and local habitat degradation.
