Trout Unlimited Launches Steelhead Initiative

On Nov. 20, Trout Unlimited will launch the Wild Steelhead Initiative, a project to protect and restore the wild steelhead and the fishing opportunities they provide throughout their native range in Alaska, California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

At the heart of the initiative is Wild Steelheaders United, a home to anyone who believes in the common quest to protect these fish and the incredible fishing opportunities they provide.

The Initiative will focus on river systems that could support robust, fishable wild steelhead populations, while accepting that properly managed steelhead hatcheries may be appropriate for fishing and harvest opportunity in rivers that can no longer support wild steelhead.

The Initiative will address both habitat protection/restoration and steelhead policy and management to align all of the “H’s” (habitat (including hydro), hatcheries, and harvest) so that wild steelhead can thrive.

Please join us to kick-off this initiative at simultaneous events in five “steelhead states”. The events are free and open to the public.
