This month, we welcomed our new Science Advisor, Gary Marston, to our team here at Wild Steelheaders United.
Today is Science Director John McMillan’s last day with Wild Steelheaders United and in his final post, he reflects back on seven years of his work alongside a mighty steelhead army.
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.
Much of the original evolutionary fabric of wild steelhead populations in the Pacific Northwest has been lost to history. But how much, exactly? A new report examining Olympic Peninsula steelhead sheds some light on that.
In part two in the unveiling of our new report on OP winter steelhead, we dive deeper into understanding the shift in run and spawn timing, and how this research can help with recovery planning.
New research shows historical catch records from 70 years ago unlock new insights about population changes in Olympic Peninsula wild steelhead.
It’s steelhead fryday and we have you covered with a look into the early life stage of steelhead and the various types of behavior and biology at play.
This week’s Science Friday is an update on a topic we have covered before: the effect of the Hood Canal bridge on survival of steelhead smolts passing through Hood Canal.
We’re rolling on with Elwha week with more content on the people that have helped make the Elwha the Phoenix Rising from the Ashes. Today, we have the next post in our Meet the Team series featuring our Science Director for the Wild Steelhead Initiative, John McMillan. You may already know John from his Instagram account @rainforest_steel, or his Barbless …
A holiday weekend deserves a new Science Friday post. So here we go. This week we focus on summer steelhead in the John Day River, a large tributary that drains into the middle Columbia River on the Oregon side. The John Day is a big watershed, covering 8,000 square miles, although the river itself is not that large. To …
