This report, the fourth of a series, documents the incidental catch of steelhead trout (Salmo gairdneri) by the commercial net fisheries for salmon in three coastal regions of British Columbia. Results contained in the report include the estimates of steelhead catch for each area, the time and place of catch, and an evaluation of a simplified version of the previous year's voluntary log-book program. As in past years, a summary of fishermen's comments, suggestions and complaints are included in the Appendix.
