A detailed feasibility assessment for habitat complexing of six stream systems in the Lower Mainland was conducted by the Fish Habitat Improvement Section on behalf of Region 2 Fisheries Management. Biophysical stream surveys were conducted with emphasis on site accessibility for enhancement. Enhancement priorities were determined by comparison of 1+/0+ age ratios for fish with high ratios indicating high priority. Eight of 23 creeks (19 were previosuly identified as enhancement candidates) were eliminated as enhancement possibilities due to problems with access, water quality/quantity or stream course development. Enhancement opportunities were identified in (a) Alouette River system: Coho Creek, Z Creek, McKenny Creek, W Creek, (b) Little Campbell River mainstem, (c) Sumas River system: Lonzo Creek, (d) Hatzic Lake drainage system: Draper Creek, Lagace Creek, Belchorton Creek, the first and second tributaries west of Belchorton Creek, (e) McKay Creek, and (f) Port Mann Creek.
