The Theodosia River empties into the Theodosia Inlet in Okcover Arm just north of Lund and Powell River. Historic DFO annual peak escapement data for Theodosia River show 35,000 Chum, 7,500 Coho and 3,500 Pink. Other sources indicate that runs were as high as 100,000 Pink, 50,000 Chum and 10,000 Coho prior to the diversion of 80% of the river flow. Water was diverted for hydro-electric power to a pulp mill in 1956. Although the company was required to maintain minimum flows, adjacent logging resulted in drastic water level changes. Winter storms typically resulted in silting, erosion, scouring, and frequent changes in the lower channel bed.
