Trout stream management consists of protection of existing waters from further degradation, and management of the fishery through regulation implementation and stocking programs to manipulate use patterns. The dwindling trout resource is impacted by an increasing number of resource users. Management ofa trout fishery should consider attitudes of trout fishermen expressed in their definitions of quality angling.
