dc.description.abstract A study of the Avon River fisheries resource was conducted in 1981 to assess its current condition and to determine remedial management measures. Shakespeare pond, stocked annually with catchable-sized rainbow trout, currently provides 78% of angling opportunities within the watershed. The fisheries habitat of the Avon River is in an unfavourable state and is presently incapable of supporting a sport fishery. Bait-fishermen are utilizing the resource at maximum levels. Considerable rehabilitative measures would be required to restore the trout fishery above Stratford and establish a bass fishery below Lake Victoria.
