Topic Fish: Adult Steelhead Catch per Unit Effort 1953-55,1962-63,1972-76
Caption:  Catch rates of adult steelhead for sport anglers were much higher in 1953-54 than in subsequent years. In contrast to the less than four hours it took an angler to catch a steelhead in 1953-54, it took about 20 angler hours to catch a steelhead in 1975-76 and 50 hours in 1972-73. Boydstun (1974a) noted that while angler effort in 1972-73 was 60% greater than in 1953-55, the catch was just 25% of that of 1953-55. He attributed the decreased catch rate to decreased adult steelhead abundance. Angler effort and success may be substantial impaired by high flow conditions and associated turbidity.
