Abstract "The Siletz River (Figure 1) is the only short coastal stream
in Oregon inhabited by a run of what are generally thought to be
native summer steelhead. Hatchery-reared progeny from Siletz River
stock have been released into and have become established in two
other Oregon coastal streams, the Nestucca and Wilson rivers. In
1968 a study on the Siletz River summer steelhead was undertaken.
The study continued for five years and terminated June 30, 1973.
Partial financing of the study was accomplished through the Anadromous
Fish Act (PL 89-304) administered by the Bureau of Sport
Fisheries and Wildlife." (From Introduction)
