Harvest of Wild and Stocked Fish from the Logan River Drainage

Louis S. Pechacek, Utah State University


The chief purpose of this study is to contribute a share of knowledge to the sound management of the Logan River and similar bodies of water. If the river is to continue to support the present army of anglers and retain a harvestable crop of fish for them, the management of the crop and the fishermen will have to be established on a sound basis. The second objective of this study is to learn whether or not the state's fish stocking program is meeting fishermen needs, and how stocking should be handled to return the largest number of fish to the creel per dollar expended.
