“Salmon are part of the natural commons; they belong to all of us, and we have a shared responsibility to ensure their persistence. This collective responsibility can bring citizens of a community together for a common purpose.”

-Jim Lichatowich

One of the great things about the evolution of our modern existence is the ability to connect with those near and far.  Social Media has opened doors and created relationships that in the past, could have taken years to align.

Be Steelheaded with Trout Unlimited TONIGHT!

On Nov. 20, Trout Unlimited will launch the Wild Steelhead Initiative, a project to protect and restore the wild steelhead and the fishing opportunities they provide throughout their native range in Alaska, California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

At the heart of the initiative is Wild Steelheaders United, a home to anyone who believes in the common quest to protect these fish and the incredible fishing opportunities they provide.

The Initiative will focus on river systems that could support robust, fishable wild steelhead populations, while accepting that properly managed steelhead hatcheries may be appropriate for fishing and harvest opportunity in rivers that can no longer support wild steelhead.

The Initiative will address both habitat protection/restoration and steelhead policy and management to align all of the “H’s” (habitat (including hydro), hatcheries, and harvest) so that wild steelhead can thrive.

Please join us to kick-off this initiative at simultaneous events in five “steelhead states”. The events are free and open to the public.

More information to come soon! Stay tuned to tu.org, our Facebook and Twitter pages or write Shauna Sherard to learn more about TU’s newest effort.
