A multi-organization publication outlining the comments of WSC, Native Fish Society, Wild Fish Conservancy, Federation of Fly Fishers, and Washington Fly Fishing Coalition on the Klickitat River Hatchery Complex program. The Klickitat is a river of extraordinary biological and cultural importance for the state of Washington and for the recovery of listed steelhead in the Middle Columbia.
The Wild Steelhead Coalition recommends the adoption of an unconditional, statewide, wild steelhead release policy in Washington State. This policy would mandate that all wild steelhead caught by sport angling methods within Washington State be released unharmed, without exception.

The WSC provided comments for critical habitat designation for the Puget Sound Wild Steelhead DPS. The WSC analyzed the Proposed critical habitat designation map and found specific areas that should be included in the critical habitat designation. Well Documented Science and research has indicated these areas are critical to wild Steelhead adults and juvenile migration. The WSC also commented on habitat degredation and channelization of rivers. These impacts must be addressed in the critical habitat designation as well.
