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.
