Abstract Share this page

A sampling technique is described for quantitative creel census on large lakes with numerous public access points. By use of contacts with anglers and boat counts over spaced intervals, one man, working a 5-day and 40-hour work week, can obtain an estimate of sport fishing pressure and harvest and of goodness of fishing on two lakes. A summary and comparison of census results from the 12 lakes totalling 15,136 acres is given along with discussion of reliability of census methods. During the fishing year 1954 (December 1, 1953 to November 30, 1954) mean fishing pressure on the lakes was 36.8 hours per acre; mean harvest was 30.7 fish and 17.8 pounds of fish per acre; and mean rate of catch for summer anglers 0.83 fish and 0.47 pound of fish per hour. Fishing harvest by summer angling, winter angling, and winter spearing are compared and trends in the catch and habits of fishermen for the three years 1952–54 are described. During the 3 years of census total fishing pressure and harvest on the lakes appear to have increased about 15 percent but goodness of fishing has remained nearly constant.
