Abstract

With an ever increasing fishing pressure on our natural and artificial lakes every measure possible must be taken to preserve the sport for its many thousands of participants.

Hyrum Reservoir is easily accessible to the fishermen of northern Utah. In recent years the lake has offered little in the way of fishing. It is hoped that the information accumulated in this study will help pave the way to a successful stocking program and that Hyrum Reservoir will be one of the productive fishing areas available to Utah anglers.

The objectives of this investigation were:

1. To determine the extent of area suitable to fish life at the critical seasons of the year.

2. To determine the chemical, physical and biological factors which may affect fish population numbers.

3. To study critical aspects in the ecology of the rainbow trout in the impoundment.
