Recreational Angler Behavior and Site Choice within Midwestern Reservoirs
  • Presentation Type: Thesis Defense
  • Date: 4/12/2017
  • Abstract:

    Recreational anglers are influential predators in inland fisheries that act across multiple scales to complete a fishing trip. Although between-trip and across-waterbody angler behavior and site choice are well documented, within-trip behavior is poorly understood. Recreational fisheries are complex systems, in which interactions occur across scales.

    I tested the connections between angler behavior, trip outcome, and angler perceptions to elucidate within-trip angler behavior. I recorded angler site choice across the open-water season at four Salt Valley reservoirs and compared angler location to a suite of habitat variables. I used a competing-models approach to determine what model of physical features best determined angler choice. I compared realized choice results (where I recorded anglers) with stated preferences (what anglers said was most important for site choice). Results are intended to increase understanding of angler behavior for effective fisheries management.
