Broken Pumps Lead to 175 Endangered Steelhead Deaths

In the past year, 175 steelhead trout — a federally endangered species — died in Hilton Creek, a tributary of the Santa Ynez River, when pumps operated by the federal Bureau of Reclamation that feed water into the creek as part of a steelhead restoration effort failed to function properly and left the fish stranded in the mud.

Bob Triggs won't be guiding anyone for winter run steelhead on the Olympic Peninsula any more. The rest of the world needs to wake up before it's too late.

I stand with Bob, we'll see you in BC next fall.



The wheels of wild steelhead management turn very slowly.....



Angling regulation proposals for the East Fork of the Lewis River will be discussed when the Steelhead Management Work Group meets at 1 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, 2108 Grand Blvd.

So we're now back to holding working group meetings on this proposal?

What happened with the Green and the Toutle?

It's all part of the plan!

Setting up a network of gene banks is one of a number of strategies endorsed by the department's Statewide Steelhead Management Plan, adopted in 2008.


A plan is typically any diagram or list of steps with timing and resources, used to achieve an objective.  It is commonly understood as a temporal set of intended actions through which one expects to achieve a goal.

Six years later and we're still waiting for somebody to implement the dam "plan."

Bill McMillan has been an inspiration to many steelhead anglers but more importantly an inspiration to many of us who fight on behalf wild steelhead.

Todd Hirano speaks for all of us who have been inspired by Bill.


Action Needed: ODFW Coastal Management Plan fails to protect wild fish

The CMP developed by the Oregon Depatrment of Fish and Wildlife staff with limited public input, is primarily a hatchery and harvest plan that is designed to continue most of the current management practices. It is scientifically suspect, and represents a high risk for wild fish on much of the Oregon coast. The draft Coastal salmonid Management Plan (CMP) is available for comment until February 10.
