Wild Sky Steelhead

This wild steelhead is resting behind a boulder exactly where Snohomish County wants to build a hydroelectric project on Washington's Skykomish River. The 24 foot in diameter water intake would be drilled into the bedrock within yards of where this fish is swimming. After this fish spawns it will out-migrate to the ocean, passing over two class VI waterfalls, the latter, Sunset Falls drops 104 feet in 300 feet. The same is true for a the tiny salmon, whitefish, bull trout and trout born above the falls. these fish will experience a much different trip if a hydroelectric project is built here.

You can learn more about the proposed hydroprojct on Washington's Wild and Scenic Skykomish River here.
