  • Comments on Snider Creek Hatchery Steelhead

    WSC submitted this document to the WDFW in June 2011 and made the recommendation that the Snider Creek Hatchery on the Sol Duc River be terminated. The Olympic Peninsula boasts many great steelhead rivers, but the Sol Duc seems to be the best fit to be designated as a Wild Steelhead Management Area (WSMA) for a multitude of reasons. Among other topics, Burge and McMillan explain the unique benefits of the Sol Duc spawning habitat as well as the harmful impacts of Snider hatchery fish on wild winter steelhead.
