This report presents the results of the 2013 adult component of the Gates Creek salmonid out-migration study. The data from this report are collected to compliment juvenile Sockeye (Oncorhynchus nerka) abundance data to be collected in the spring of 2014. The abundance, fecundity and percent spawn data from this report will be used to generate estimates of egg to fry survival for both Gates Creek and Gates Creek spawning channel in the spring of 2014.

In 2011, the DFO scientific advisors for the Gates Creek spawning channel requested that Instream Fisheries Research Inc. (IFR) submit a study design to enumerate out-migrant Sockeye fry and coho juveniles in Gates Creek to compliment ongoing work on the Gates Creek spawning channel. A proposal including the juvenile enumeration study and complimentary Sockeye adult monitoring was submitted by the Lillooet Tribal Council (LTC) and DFO to the BC Hydro Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program. The objectives of the adult component of this study are to assess the following parameters for adult Sockeye returning to spawn in Gates Creek and the spawning channel: - Estimate adult Sockeye abundance - Estimate female percent spawn - Estimate mean female fecundity - Generate estimates of egg deposition This report summarizes the findings of the 2013 adult component of the study.
