On August 25, 1983, a total of 14,866 steelhead fry were released to Gold Creek, tributary to Alouette Lake. The fish were scattered through 2 km of streamlength immediately below barrier falls located approximately 3.8 km above the lake (Fig. 1). Alouette River adult hatchery steelhead (tagged returning fish) were used as broodstock, and subsequent to rearing, the fry weighed an average of 4.9 g at time of release (suggesting a fork length in the order of 75 mm).
