200034. Larkin, P.A., G.C. Anderson, W.A. Clemens and D.C.G. Mackay. THE PRODUCTION OF KAMLOOPS TROUT [Salmo gairdnerii Kamloops ] IN PAUL LAKE, BRITISH COLUMBIA. Victoria B.C.: Univ. of British Columbia & British Columbia Game Dept. 37 p. 1950. Paper Wraps. 4to illus. [Cat. 2020] 200034z. –Paul Lake and its trout population has been studied since 1931. This report summarizes all the prior studies on this lake, which is typical of many trout lakes in British Columbia. Topics include Location and Morphometry; Physical and Chemical Conditions; Fauna of the Lake; Trout Stomach-Content Analysis; Recent Statistics of the Trout Population; Angler’s Catch; Sex Ratio; Large Fish Recorded; Growth of Trout; “Stream Type” vs, “Lake Type” Growth in First Year; Spawning Run; Discussion; Conclusions; Literature Cited. Roderick L. Haig-Brown devoted an entire chapter to Paul Lake in his THE WESTERN ANGLER, both in his 1937 Limited Edition and his 1947 New Edition. He was fully cognizant of the research done on the lake, and cites many of the pioneering studies on the lake. He considered Paul Lake one of the most dependable of the artificially stocked Kamloops trout lakes. I had always wanted to fish for Kamloops trout in BC, but had to wait for conclusion of my Military Draft obligation in 1957 to visit the area. I fished many of the lakes mentioned by Haig-Brown, such as Paul and Knouff, with my friends. I also fished Badger, Woods, Shuswap, Peterhope, and many others from 1957 to 1959. We took many fine fish from 4 to 7 1/2 lb. on dry flies. Paul Lake still had a good population of fish to 3 lb. when we fished it. As a Fish Biologist and a fan of Haig-Brown, I was fascinated with the Kamloops rainbow and the scientific literature on the fish by pioneering British Columbia biologists. This publication is one of the best of the earlier studies. Very Good. $35
