Default landlocks vs brookies

Here's a question that might be of interest to someone working in fisheries management. I thought I would post it here before contacting fisheries managers in my area. I have been fishing a stream (for around 20 years) that is tributary to a large river. It is excellent for brookies, not too much fishing pressure. Now, last year, the wildlife and fish dept. stocked landlock salmon in the river. By late last summer, I started catching them in the stream. They are still smallish (12-14 inches). Do the landlocks have any impact on brookies? Meaning would they compete for spawning areas or for food? Maybe someone on the forum is a biologist or has had this kind of experience.
