About the Edition

A creel survey conducted at the Agulukpak River during the summer of 1996 indicated that no significant changes had occurred in angler demographics or biological composition of the rainbow trout population since the mid-1980s. The typical angler on the Agulukpak River is male (86%), guided (85%), nonresident (85%), and fishes from a boat (82%). The fishery sustained an estimated 6,301 angler-hours of effort (SE = 103) from 23 June through 22 September 1996, during which anglers caught an estimated 5,320 rainbow trout (SE = 113). Continued monitoring of the fishery is recommended to ensure that the rainbow trout population remains healthy in the Agulukpak River.
