The Kloiya River Community Development Program (CDP) under the Salmonid Enhancement Program (S.E.P.) is currently planning a small fish culture facility with smolt production goals of 100,000 chinook, 100,000 coho and 50,000 steelhead. Presently only small-scale incubation facilities are in use. Carrying capacity for juvenile steelhead and coho in the Kloiya system was evaluated by the Fish Habitat Improvement Section from August 18-20, 1980. The purpose of this investigation was to outline the feasibility of naturally rearing additional steelhead and coho produced by the CDP in the Kloiya system. Standing crop estimates and theoretical smolt yield predictions suggest that most stream areas have sufficient numbers of steelhead and coho fry to a point where fry populations were not the primary limiting factor to smolt yield. Opportunities for increased natural rearing of salmonid juveniles in the Kloiya system are viewed as being limited given observed (1980) levels of fry recruitment. Rearing of additional co
