The annual collection of fisheries statistics provides resource managers with information describing the intensity of fisheries and with estimates of the biological parameters of stocks undergoing exploitation. In British Columbia, a number of different types of creel surveys have been conducted with varying degrees of success; poor results usually being obtained where the objectives of the program were not clearly defined or where available manpower was spread too thinly to meet those objectives. The purpose of this report is to (1) provide a summary and evaluation of a number of creel survey programs which were undertaken at Loon Lake (near Clinton) during 1949-1974 (usually as an adjunct to other ongoing programs), and, (2) to describe the historical development of that fishery.
