Angling Guide Data Entry and Summary for the 2004-2005 to 2006-2007 licence years

Angling guides throughout BC, including those guiding in the Skeena River watershed, submit annual reports on their guiding activities to BC’s Ministry of Environment. This project provided entry of the information from those reports into a database so that they could be analyzed to allow direct feedback to the guides who report catch and effort.  The database was updated by SKR Consultants with angling guide data for trout, char, salmon, and steelhead harvested in the Skeena recreational fishery between the 2004-2005 and 2006-2007 licence years. SKR also produced a report that presents a summary of the data, describing trends and variation in guided angler effort, catch, and the status of angling guide activities in the Skeena Watershed.

project objectives
Summarize previously unprocessed data about Skeena steelhead abundance, composition and movements collected through angler catch records and harvest questionnaires from the 2004-2005 to 2006-2007 licence years.
