Abstract: Recreational fishing for steelhead trout in British Columbia is world-renowned and in several rivers, cultured fish represent a significant contribution to the catch. The steelhead program of the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C., under the direction and policy of B.C.?s Ministry of Environment, and in cooperation with several Federal Fisheries hatcheries, generates hatchery smolts for release. The resultant angling opportunities are of high value to the Provincial economy. The use of hatchery steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and catch and release of wild steelhead provides angling benefits, but may also impose risks to wild stocks. The overall purpose of the Provincial stream classification policy is to manage the risks in order to maintain healthy, self-sustaining wild steelhead stocks. Most rivers with steelhead present in B.C. are classified as wild.
