A lake-dwelling population of cutthroat trout Oncorhynchus clarki at McKinney Lake on Admiralty Island, Southeast Alaska, was systematically sampled on three occasions between May 31 and August 14, 1996 using baited hoop traps and hook and line gear. Abundance and length composition were estimated and vertical and horizontal movements of recaptured fish were documented. Catch rates and fractions of marked fish found along the margins, bottom, and center (pelagic area) of the lake were compared over time. Mid-water traps and trolling with lures were used to sample the pelagic area of the lake. We tested for trap avoidance behavior and whether recapture rates differed significantly for fish marked with anchor T-bar and Visible Implant tags. Significant avoidance of baited hoop traps (relative to hook and line) and effects related to tag type were not detected. However, experimental power was much lower than planned due to difficulties in recapturing the desired number of marked fish. Recaptured fish traveled horizontal distances of up to 3,085 meters, but the majority (57%) traveled 300 meters or less. Vertical movement ranged up to 18 meters, but one-half of the recaptured fish moved 3 meters or less. Time at large (18 to 72 days) was not an important factor in the vertical or horizontal distance traveled between captures. The estimated abundance of cutthroat trout 180 mm FL in McKinney Lake was 3,756 (SE = 798). Stratification of the experiment by depth and area was needed to reduce bias in the estimate. Marked fractions differed significantly between shoreline and offshore areas over the time of sampling perhaps due to limited fish movements. If this occurs in other lakes, complete mixing of marked fish may not occur during a typical two-event experiment to estimate abundance of cutthroat trout. Thus, equal probability of capture assumptions may be critically important in these experiments.
