Trout Unlimited to launch Wild Steelhead Initiative and Wild Steelheaders United group with November 20 events

TU Wild Steelhead Initiative

TU Wild Steelhead Initiative

Trout Unlimited (TU) recently announced the Wild Steelhead Initiative, a project designed to protect and restore wild steelhead fishing in Western states. To celebrate the Initiative’s launch, TU will host simultaneous events on November 20 in Alaska, California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

The new Initiative focuses on river systems that can support fishable wild steelhead populations, including the continued use of steelhead hatcheries in rivers that can no longer support wild steelhead. As part of the Initiative, TU is creating a new group called Wild Steelheaders United that promises a way for anglers to become more informed about steelhead and TU’s conversation efforts.

Here’s a list of event locations. Also, stay tuned to TU’s Facebook and Twitter pages for more launch event details.
