Entries in steelhead (184)
Thanks for the 706 votes Chum Nation - nice community contribution for sure! June was a tough one. As such, we're making an executive decision to announce Co-Winners.
Sammy Hignell-Stark (the people's choice) and Alex Lovett-Woodsum (the choice where pure slabbage simply cannot be ignored) should be proud. Many a entry was worthy and these ladies kicked a very solid amount of buttocks.
Stay tuned for July voting. We've got another slab infested situation brewing.
British Columbia's Thompson River, among the most storied steelhead rivers in the world for its huge, hard fighting fall steelhead once supported thousands of spawning steelhead annually. As recently as the 70s numbers were over 10 thousand.
Steelhead biologists confirmed this week what was predicted last fall -- Thompson River steelhead returns for 2008-09 are the lowest ever recorded.
850 returned to spawn this past spring and only 500 are expected next year.

This is the blog of The Osprey: conservation journal of wild salmonids. We believe the first step towards conservation and recovery of our anadromous fish is an informed community of advocates. Through our publication The Osprey, our Website and this blog we hope to share relevant news regarding the management, science and politics surrounding steelhead and salmon in the Pacific Northwest.
The Osprey newsletter is the Federation of Fly Fisher's acclaimed steelhead conservation newsletter.
