New Version of the online angler survey is now available
Permalink  
 


To all fly fishers: thanks to Webmaster Keith a new updated online angler survey form has gone live.

 

To increase angler survey participation and data collection for the wild trout fishery, PCT, with support from Solano Water Agency is conducting an on-line angler survey to support the CDFW’s Bay Delta Region and Heritage and Wild Trout Program management of the fishery. This is a long-term angler survey to estimate the distribution size classes of the Native Wild Trout occurring in the Inter-dam Reach. This will help guide future work to improve the fishery. Each survey completed will count as an entry into drawings for fishing gear and other prizes. 

This survey has three primary elements: 1) survey boxes with paper forms that are completed by anglers on site 2) online surveys completed by use of a QR code that directly links to a fillable form 3) on-stream personal interviews by volunteers. The goals of the surveys are to 1) document the numbers of fish within different size classes (small medium large) caught by anglers, 2) measure angler satisfaction of their experience with fishing the creek 3) incentivize stakeholders to participate in this survey on a regular basis.

To facilitate ease of completion of the angler survey forms, business cards containing the QR code have been placed in the metal survey boxes located at Fishing Access 5 and the highway 128 parking lots near the Dam. The QR code is shown below and will be available on our website, Instagram and Facebook pages as well. Anglers completing either box paper forms or the online survey have the option of including your email which will be used to select winners of various items of fly-fishing gear and $50 gift cards over the term of the study. Each completed survey = 1 entry for the drawings. The first drawing will be in mid-April for spots on the roster of a two-day fish out on private property along the Yuba River above the highway 120 Bridge (depending on the COVID-19 outbreak status).

Why is this survey important? Currently, it is the best way to measure the health of the fishery. There is concern that few replacement young fish have survived the scouring flows of two of the past three years which have occurred at the end of the spawning season and when eggs are developing in redds. A survey for redds this winter found few redds and even fewer fish on them. In addition, two years of fall season electro-fishing surveys of young fish habitat turned up very small numbers of young of the year.

We need your invaluable help to support the fishery. Grab a QR code business card from the survey boxes or complete one of the paper forms in the boxes (add email to back of form). The on-stream personal interviews will begin once the threat of COVID 19 diminishes to a safe level 

Thank you

 

The Board of Directors of Putah Creek Trout

Attached below is a summary of the 1st 3 months of the current online/onstream/survey box results. Thanks to all those that have contributed to date; we need to expand the numbers of different individuals that are reporting their catches.

Please take a minute of your time at the end of your fishing day to complete the survey using the barcode at the top of this page.
