Steelhead: A Win In The Wild

SteelheadIn 2014, the Snider Creek hatchery program will be terminated. For a quarter of a century, the Snider Creek hatchery on the Olympic Peninsula has harvested wild winter run steelhead from the Sol Duc River to be used for broodstock. The program has yielded historically low returns and has negatively impacted the early returning wild fish. Recently, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife decided to discontinue the program. Thanks to those who petitioned to put an end to the hatchery. The Sol Duc River will now be a refuge for wild steelhead. Another step in the right direction for WA.
