The Wild Steelhead Coalition was honored to donate a brand new raft, oars, trail cameras, and spotting scopes to the WDFW Law Enforcement Program on the Olympic Peninsula to support their critical efforts to defend and protect our shared natural resources in that vast, wild landscape.
Please take action and submit comments to WDFW by November 30, 2017 expressing opposition to several proposals put forth by WDFW in 2017 during the Freshwater Regulations phase of the agency’s Sport Fishing Rule Simplification Process.
The Wild Steelhead Coalition is proud to be a funding partner of WDFW’s Hoh River Steelhead Research Program, a years-long effort to better understand steelhead biology and ecology, fill information gaps needed for steelhead management, and improve resiliency of steelhead populations.
The fishing might be tough these days, but as anglers we have a responsibility to help fund the management and conservation of our state’s fish and wildlife. We have the chance to do help make that happen tomorrow in Olympia at a hearing about House Bill 1647.
This month, WDFW designated the Elwha and Nisqually rivers as Wild Steelhead Gene Banks, which is welcome news, but the entire Skagit should be designated as well.
Apply today for a chance to serve on a new WDFW Advisory Group tasked with helping identify a new Wild Steelhead Gene Bank in north Puget Sound.
