You are invited to attend the Wild Steelhead Coalition’s June meeting. Be sure to join us for a great evening full of important information/discussion regarding wild steelhead and raffle of some great fishing items courtesy of Avid Angler, Kaufmann’s and Three Rivers Tackle.

June Program/Guest Speaker: Nick Gayeski

Presentation Title: "Steelhead Life History and Population
Persistence: Thoughts From Kamchatka".

Nick will provide an overview of Kamchatka’s landscape, river Environments and salmonid populations; Russia's listing of steelhead in the Red Data Book, the Wild Salmon Center's Kamchatka Steelhead Project and Jack Stanford's and his involvement with the Wild Salmon Center as part of an expanding international scientific research and conservation project focusing on river complexity and salmonid biodiversity. Nick will also describe the general steelhead/rainbow population complex found in western Kamchatkan rivers and discuss some of the data collected. He will then discuss some possible relations between life history diversity of rainbow/steelhead in Kamchatka and the long-term persistence of these populations.

Bio:, Nick Gayeski has worked full time for Washington Trout since 1996 analyzing state and federal natural resource management policies affecting resident and anadromous salmonids and their aquatic habitats, including salmon and steelhead harvest policies, hatchery policies and practices, and land use issues affecting water quality, quantity, and the general biological integrity of aquatic ecosystems. Prior to that Nick ran the Western Flyfisher, in Lynnwood, WA. from 1986 until 1993, then worked for Kaufmann's Streamborn Fly Shop in Seattle and Bellevue from 1993 to 1996. during this time he also guided for steelhead on the Skykomish, Sauk-Skagit, and Wenatchee, and the Yakima for trout. Nick began going to Kamchatka in 1999. In addition to his regular fulltime work with Washington Trout, he is in process of earning his Ph.D. in Biology under Dr. Jack Stanford at the University of Montana, where he plans to focus on the Kacmahtka steelhead/rainbow research.

A question and answer period will follow as well as an overview of other WSC business and raffle of some great fishing items. Feel free to show up at 6:30 PM to meet some of the WSC Members and hear about how the WSC is working to preserve the legacy of wild steelhead!
