FYI, The final WSC Steelhead Management Plan which contains plans for wild Washington steelhead fisheries and new concepts for Washington hatcheries (based mostly on the Hatchery Scientific Review Group,HSRG)is available on the WSC website. This plan was based on the science and management information recently published in the Wild Steelhead Coalition’s paper titled “The Status of Wild Steelhead and Their Management in Western Washington: Strategies for Conservation and Recreation”. This plan may be most appropriate for Western Washington. Groups and organizations from other areas/states/provinces may want to take note for plans in their specific state or area for improved conservations of wild steelhead.
