Abstract: Between May and September, 1990, the recreational sport fishery on Bridge Lake was surveyed. Aerial boat counts were used to estimate angler use at 10,133 angler days. Effort in the 1990 fishery increased 30% over previous years. A total of 699 anglers were interviewed throughout the summer at a fishing resort and a provincial campground adjacent to the lake. The average number of anglers per boat was 1.86 and the average angler hours per angler was 4.0. Anglers spent an estimated 40,533 hours fishing to catch 4965 lake char (0.12/hour), 4154 kokanee (0.1/hour) and 1216 rainbow trout (0.03/hour). Ninety-six percent of the sport fish caught by anglers were killed. The estimated total harvest for lake char was 5000 kg or 3.6 kg/ha of lake surface area. This was 3-6 times higher than the theoretical sustainable harvest for this species. Lake char in the creel and on the spawning beds averaged 45.8 and 45.3 cm fork length, respectively. Spawning lake char first mature at 7 years of age. They averaged 14 years old
