Event Details

Steelhead Science Workshop for Anglers

The objective of the workshop is to inform anglers about the state of the science regarding steelhead issues most relevant to their angling opportunity and experience,and to provide an opportunity for anglers to share their insights with, and ask questions of the scientists.

We have selected some of the very best scientists to present because they are not only experts on their topic of interest, but also because they are anglers who enjoy fishing for steelhead.

The workshop will feature four presentations by scientists, each of which covers a particular aspect of steelhead science (see below for topics), followed by four panel discussions that will be interactive with audience participation. We believe that anglers will leave the workshop with a better understanding of steelhead science and how that science can be used to help develop sustainable fisheries. (Presenters will be listed upon confirmation).

We suggest arriving early because seating is limited and entry will be based on a first come, first serve basis. By RSVP'ing here you will secure a spot.


 Steelhead biology and ecology

  • What is a steelhead: the basic biology and ecology
  • Residency v. anadromy and the importance of both life histories to steelhead
  • The drivers of steelhead abundance and productivity, such as genetic and life history diversity, marine conditions, and habitat quantity and quality

Steelhead and hatcheries

  • The different purposes served by hatcheries: integrated v. segregated
  • Harmful and beneficial effects of hatcheries in relation to wild steelhead
  • Domestication effects: review of the science
  • Ecological effects
  • Solutions moving forward to reduce domestication and ecological effects

Steelhead fishery management

  • Monitoring and escapement goals– assumptions and why they are important
  • Harvest effects on wild steelhead productivity and diversity
  • Indirect effects of mixed stock fisheries on wild fish
  • C&R mortality and sub-lethal effects

Wild steelhead success stories, where and why

  • Discussion of where steelhead have and have not recovered and potential reasons for those results

The goal of the Initiative is to, organize, activate and educate.

The passion to catch wild steelhead is a bond that unites anglers young and old, urban and rural, liberal and conservative, gear or fly. Wild steelhead have inspired thousands of anglers to become conservationists. Until now, those conservation efforts have been primarily local, focused on specific rivers and led by small groups of dedicated volunteers. Never before has there been a broad initiative that effectively focuses the conservation efforts of the large, impassioned community of wild steelhead anglers.

Chances of conservation success are greatest if we have the backing of as many individuals as possible.
