Barging increases likelihood of hatchery fish straying into wild steelhead populations

"To repeat the obvious, that means in 2006 an estimated 42 percent of the spawners in this “wild” population were hatchery fish. Statistical modeling indicated the number of steelhead smolts barged in the Snake River in the previous several years was a strong predictor of PHOS (Percent Hatchery Origin Spawners)."

Why do we care about native trout?

"Because native trout have adapted over centuries and millennia in specific environments, they are, in many cases, more likely to survive the extremes of those places. Having passed through the crucible of a specific system’s cycles of drought, flood, and wildfire a native trout species may be more hardy than non-native fish."

Sometimes the benefits of conservation are immediate

It often takes years for the results of conservation work to be recognized, but sometimes it happens during the process. Such was the case on a recent project Trout Unlimited was working on with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources in northeastern Utah.

A unique path to Crayfish Creek

"Fishing has always been a part of my life, but it was not until middle school I picked up fly fishing. I wanted to spend time with my old man doing something other than golf and fly fishing intrigued me. I immediately loved the effortlessly methodical nature of the sport. I grew up fishing streams around northern Georgia and North Carolina."

The coronavirus may change fishing as we know it

Ironically, 2020 is “The Year of the Rat.” Given how 2020 has unfolded so far, I actually consider that to be an insult to rats. But we are seeing some lifting of the pandemic fog where I live in Colorado and in many other places around the country—and fishing definitely stands to be affected… for better or worse.

Summer run steelhead were thought to be extirpated in Washington’s Elwha River, after two dams blocked fish passage for a century. Both dams were removed by 2014. How wild summer steelhead responded amazed scientists and steelhead advocates. Check out the new film from Trout Unlimited and North Fork Studios on the remarkable recovery of summer steelhead in the Elwha on TU’s YouTube channel APRIL 17 AT 6 PM Pacific Time.

Everything is a little different these days, thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and how and where we fish should be different, too.
That said, fishing can be perfectly safe if we take the right precautions, and we’re encouraging all TU members and supporters to get outside and go fishing, but to do so using wisdom and caution. To that end, we’re inviting everyone, whether they are a TU member or not, to share photos and stories with us that show anglers practicing #ResponsibleRecreation and, in the process, have a chance to win some great prizes from TU
