  • Vote for Puget Sound wild steelhead gene banks

    This is your opportunity to help establish wild steelhead gene banks in a minimum of three Puget Sound rivers. Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is currently accepting comments on selecting “Wild Steelhead Gene Banks” in three Puget Sound Regions: (1) North Cascades, (2) Central/South Puget Sound, and (3) Hood Canal and Strait of Juan de Fuca. Wild Gene Banks are watersheds within which hatchery steelhead will not be planted; science indicates that keeping hatchery steelhead apart from wild steelhead is critical to wild steelhead recovery.

Please submit a comment by using the red Take Action link and tell NOAA you will not stand for them undermining federal environmental protections for threatened steelhead.

  • Wild Steelhead Coalition Statement in Support of ‘Occupy Skagit’

    Opening up Skagit/Sauk to selective gear catch and release angling is within the conservation mandate for this watershed and would support the desires of recreational anglers, benefit local economies, and reduce pressure on other wild steelhead returns in our region.
