  1. Great video. I’m not a crazy steelhead fisherman myself. Not because I don’t want to be, or because I wouldn’t enjoy it. I’ve lived in GA all my life and I’ve never made it out to chase wild steelhead on the west coast. I’ve still not even made it up to fish for the lake run steelies either. I know there’s a debate as to what a true steelhead is and a lot of it has to do with whether or not said fish has touched the salt, but we’ll leave that to the experts. Anyhow, it’s awesome to see these communities come together to protect an endangered resource. I wish every threatened species, or watershed for that matter, had the same support. There’s a lot to be said for the folks that speak out for their love of steelhead. Kudos.

  2. Last year in Sheboygen I took a photo of 47 Chinook and steelhead skinned and left on the side of the river. Sickening. Sent it to the local DNR and never even got a return call.
