Continuation of our Science Friday Series: Untangling Steelhead and Rainbow Trout Dynamics
Steelhead, like all of their salmonid cousins, need cold, clean water to thrive. But protecting and restoring water quality can be a real challenge, as the changing climate is making conditions warmer and drier throughout many watersheds.
Untangling Steelhead and Rainbow Trout Dynamics in Washington’s Hood Canal: Part 1
Biden Administration released a draft report today from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) determining that removal of the lower four Snake River dams is urgently necessary to save plummeting populations of salmon and steelhead in the basin.
What do we – a former energy executive, an Eastern Washington wheat farmer, and a long-time salmon advocate and angler – have in common?
Wild Steelheaders United shifts into turbocharge—and takes on a voracious predator
Beavers deliver conditions steelhead require in their spawning grounds — cold water, longer duration of wetted streambeds, and food-rich rearing habitat. Here’s why beavers are now part of the recovery toolbox for upper Columbia River steelhead.
Read the latest on the status of the North Umpqua hatchery summer steelhead program.
While the science is clear, it’s not always easy to understand the process and potential impacts of dam removal. Here are seven frequently asked questions about taking down the Lower Snake River dams and restoring critical populations of wild fish in the Basin.
Last month the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife announced that the Deschutes River will be closed to fishing for steelhead, salmon and bass for parts of the summer to protect the river’s seriously at-risk summer steelhead population.
