What came first

Rainbow trout or steelhead?
Here we have a trout with excellent steelhead genes despite being some 80 yrs removed from those ties

As I understand it if there is a need and an opportunity even a mature fish will go to the ocean. Of course it depends on available food, water conditions and clear access. I have heard that a fish that returns from the ocean could potentially stay in a river or lake if it has what it needs to live and maybe never return to the ocean or return several years later.

Well done Bruce!

Planning a RV trip west for next year and the Columbia is definitely on my list. However, that list is getting longer.

Did steelhead swim by Castlegar before the dams went in?



Science is not common sense. Much of it is devoted to a systematic documentation of what we do not know and understand.

More proof that dams enhance a fishery.

How far did the chinook and steelhead go up on the Columbia?

If one day, all the dams on the Columbia River on the Canadian side are removed, the trout population downstream from Castlegar will suffer.

Personally, I would sacrifice the trout fishery for no more dams.
