Our Washington Coast Restoration Program, is working in coastal watersheds of the Evergreen State to remove or replace decrepit culverts and road crossings and other barriers to wild steelhead migration.
At one time, California’s Eel River once had incredibly abundant salmon, steelhead, and Pacific lamprey fisheries. But dams, major water diversions, legacy impacts from clearcut logging, and illegal cannabis cultivation have compromised the Eel’s productivity for salmonids and lamprey.
There is real hope for restoring the Klamath River and its fisheries, however. That’s because a multi-decade effort to remove the four dams of the Lower Klamath Project—in which Trout Unlimited has played a major role—is now close to the finish line.
Federal infrastructure dollars are clearing the way for anadromous fish in Oregon
Raise your voice in support of the largest dam removal in U.S. history. Critically low salmon and steelhead populations can’t wait.
Our restoration leader on California’s Central Coast takes his steelheading, and steelhead conservation, very seriously.
Part 3 of Life after dams: The Klamath River, straddling the border between California and Oregon, is the third most productive watershed for salmon and steelhead on the West Coast. The Klamath is also Ground Zero for one of the most challenging water conflicts in U.S. history.
Part 2 of Life after dams: In New England, where dams have devastated runs of Atlantic salmon and other native sea-run fish, Trout Unlimited has been working to restore rivers and salmon runs for more than 30 years.
Part 1 of a series. This week, we’re telling stories about what happens when dams come out and life flows back in. It’s a vision of what could be on the lower Snake: a free-flowing river and wild fisheries staging a remarkable comeback.
Science Director John McMillan accepted a new position with The Conservation Angler, which will allow him to do research on wild steelhead on Russia’s remote and largely intact Kamchatka Peninsula. WSI founder Rob Masonis provides his thoughts on what McMillan has meant to Trout Unlimited, and to wild steelhead in the Pacific Northwest.
