Bull trout are a federally threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. Trapper Creek is a tributary to Odell Lake in Oregon. It is an important spawning and rearing habitat for Bull Trout. A recent restoration project has helped increase the spawning and rearing habitat after it was negatively affected by the building of a railroad. Annually, a nighttime snorkel survey is conducted to count juvenile Bull Trout.
Every year, Barry Egenes and his brother return to their home in Africa for an epic fishing trip. Last year, they traveled to Zimbabwe to hunt the giant catfish known as Vundu.
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.
