Recently, we partnered with our filmmaking friend Shane Anderson to produce a short movie filled with beautiful aerial footage that tells the story of a critical habitat restoration project on the Skagit River’s Barnaby Slough.
We did it! The Grays and Chinook rivers are Washington’s newest Wild Steelhead Gene Bank thanks to your support and work.
Join us on March 24th for the Washington premier of Behind the Emerald Curtain presented by the Wild Steelhead Coalition. The premier will be held at the Patagonia Seattle store. Doors open at 7 :00 and the movie will begin at 7:30, followed by panel discussion with filmmaker Shane Anderson and author David Montgomery.
Join us on April 7th at Tini Bigs and Hula Hula for the International Fly Fishing Film Festival. This year’s event features a great set of films and a huge raffle. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Wild Steelhead Coalition and Puget Soundkeeper
The recent closing of 7400 Road along the Wynoochee River has limited public access to an extremely popular stretch of river and created a growing threat to wild steelhead with more hatchery fish stacking up. By purchasing these 15 acres through their Land Acquisition program, WDFW will be able to restore and expand recreational opportunities for anglers as well as alleviate this threat to wild fish through increased hatchery harvest.
For the protection of the Green River’s wild steelhead habitat and the surrounding forest, please take a minute to request that this dangerous hardrock mining proposal does not move forward.
