Description

Title:A Survey of the Fishery of the Kaskaskia River
Author(s):Luce, Wilbur M.
Subject(s):Fisheries
Survey
Kaskaskia River
Abstract:In the smaller streams and rivers of Illinois the principal value of the fishes and other aquatic products is attached to hook and line fishing and to the recreation and sport of taking fishes, with secondary importance attending commercial fishing. The Kaskaskia, or Okaw, River is a fair representative of the secondary streams of Illinois. In this survey we have determined what kinds of fishes are present. A comparison with the collections of fishes made in this stream 30 or more years ago by the late Professor S. A. Forbes and his associates shows that there has been very little alteration in the variety of kinds present.
