Why do we care about native trout?

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.”

Sawmill Creek is a tributary to the Lemhi River. The Lemhi River watershed is one of the highest elevation and farthest inland reaches for fish migration in the world, as the new signs point out. The watershed is also one of the most important spawning and rearing habitat areas for salmon and steelhead in the Columbia Basin.

“When school closed, students expressed concern for the wellbeing of their trout. They were extremely disappointed when they realized that we would not be taking our trip up to Ward Pound Ridge to release them. They had been looking forward to this trip. So were the other 4th grade teachers. It is always the highlight trip of the year. They were very excited on Earth Day to watch the video of the release that you sent us. That made them proud. And there was an overall feeling of relief that they had been safely introduced into their natural habitat. Thank You!!!!” – Ms. Sims, PS 84, Brooklyn

“Supporting the research and projects that TU is doing was an easy choice,” Tim Panek said. “Knowing the travels and travails of these wild fish and protecting their habitat will not only enhance fishery, but more importantly, enhance Rock Creek for all the inhabitants and visitors to the valley including our family and friends.”

Clean Water Rule Update: April 2020

Clean Water Rule Update: April 2020

The EPA’s new Waters of the U.S. Rule weakens the Clean Water Act, the landmark law that made many of America’s great rivers fishable and swimmable over the past half century. This puts in peril the sources of our rivers: the small headwater streams … where big fish go to make little fish. We need your help. Stand up for clean water now

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.
