Abstract: Toboggan Creek, a small tributary of the Bulkley River near Smithers was studied September 27 through October 1, 1978. Objectives of the project were to assess fish habitat and present fish population status in the stream, and to outline methods for enhancement of the steelhead stock. A variety of habitat types were found within Toboggan Creek and its tributaries. The fish population consisted primarily of juvenile coho salmon, steelhead trout and Dolly Varden char, with smaller populations of cuttthroat trout and mountain whitefish. Estimates of fish population size and biomass at representative sites were obtained and extrapolated to cover the entire stream. Smolt output was estimated at 13,230 coho and 1130 steelhead, with predicted adult escapement of 880 coho and 45 steelhead. Notes on the life history of primarily coho and steelhead are included. Options for enhancement of the steelhead stock in Toboggan Creek are discussed, and include spawning area improvements, boulder placements and addition of over
