From the Introduction:
"The Okanagan Basin Study, conducted in 1971, offered recommendations for the management of all the water-based resources in the Okanagan drainage. Fisheries recommendations were separated into two categories: those dealing with large "main valley" lakes (including Wood, Kalamalka, Okanagan, Skaha, Vaseux and Osoyoos) and those dealing with the smaller "headwater" lakes. This report is concerned with headwater lakes only.

Okanagan Basin Study recommendations for headwater lakes called for a 23.5 percent increase in stocking by 1980, as well as additional angling and boating restrictions, and specialized fisher programs. This report examines the the changes which have taken place in fisheries management since the Study and the effect these alterations have had on angler use, catch success and angler satisfaction."
