Steelhead Tips; 5 Things to remember…

Published: 23rd January 2019 | Author: Fulling Mill

Much of the published and unpublished data on mortality rates for steelhead is poorly understood – As a result, the guys at @keepemwetfishing and @wildsteelhead have put together these great steelhead tips to educate anglers about best handling practices once caught – in fact, these general fishing tips should be practiced on resident rainbow trout, brook trout, brown trout, Grayling, Atlantic salmon and sockeye salmon and so on… 

From www.keepemwet.org/ – Today, 70 percent of the major steelhead populations in Oregon, Idaho, Washington and California require federal protection and opportunities to catch wild steelhead have greatly diminished in many rivers.
Despite declines, steelheading remains as popular as ever. In some populations, we are catching-and-releasing nearly every fish that escapes harvest. As a result, it is important to balance our desire to catch them with handling practices that give them the best chance to swim away without lasting impairment.
