Here's some good news for Elwha steelhead, hot off the digital press, from the Elwha:


According to the Wild Steelhead Coalition, "Non-native hatchery steelhead will not be released into the Elwha River and its tributaries this year, say four conservation groups that earlier this month filed suit against federal agencies and officials of the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe (in their official capacities) for releases of hatchery fish into the Elwha."
