The Steelhead Summit is a bi-annual gathering of concerned groups, anglers and citizens to discuss the latest issues facing steelhead throughout the Northwest and California. Jointly these groups make up the Steelhead Summit Alliance which work together on behalf of the protection and restoration of native, wild steelhead.

The Agenda includes presentations from noted scientists working on fisheries and habitat research as well as discussion of public policy important to steelhead advocates. This summit will be the 7th of its kind and the first in the SW Washington and Oregon area. We encourage groups that haven't taken part in the past but are concerned with steelhead issues to join us.

New to this summit, we are offering great door prizes, including items donated by Patagonia and the State of the Salmon. We are also offering, for the first time, an optional field trip on Sunday – if there’s a critical mass. Fish First and the Lower Columbia Basin Fish Enhancement Group are offering to tour people around some habitat restoration projects, followed by a BBQ lunch sponsored by the Clark-Skamania Fly Fishers. If you want to go on this field trip, please contact Dick Kennon quickly!
