Description: An observation technique that incorporates Godified, stratified sampling was used to estimate in-stream recreation use in the White River Drainage in Vermont. Results were reported by season, day of week, time of day, kind of activity, and portion of stream. Summer had the highest use followed by spring and fall. Except in fall, weekends and holidays received substantially more recreation use than weekdays. Midmorning and early afternoon had the greatest use. Fishing was the predominant use in the spring, while swimming was the single most popular activity in summer. The main stem received the greatest use followed by tributaries and feeders.

Keywords: Stratified sampling, resource management
