Wild Trout Symposium a Hugh Success

Wild Trout-X, West Yellowstone, Montana, USA on 27 September 2010 was an outstanding success. Papers ranged from a panel on Climate Change Impacts to several on Canadian fisheries, and from a brown trout project on a tributary of the Danube River in Serbia, to marble trout projects in Slovenia, to the diversity of wild trout in Mexico's Sierra Madre mountains. In total there were over 40 verbal presentations and 30 poster papers that will be available later this year on the Symposium Web Site and as a CD at :


Over 200 fishing conservationists, fishery professionals, and guests from 33 states and countries joined together to not only get the latest in fishery status and restoration techniques but to uniquely network in an informal atmosphere that would otherwise not be possible at other conferences. It was fantastic to get back to Yellowstone National Park where our first symposium was held in 1974 under the leadership of NPS' great Superintendent Jack Anderson.

The WT-X Aldo Starker Leopold Wild Trout Medal in the professional category went to Steve Moore former Symposium Chairman and senior fisheries leader at the U. S. Great Smokies National Park. The Aldo Starker Leopold Wild Trout Medal in the nonprofessional category was awarded to Tom Pero of Wild Rivers Press, former editor of Trout Magazine, and publisher of Wild Steelhead and Salmon Magazine. Three student scholarships and a wild trout restoration project award were also conferred.

WT-XI, the eleventh wild trout symposium is now being planned for September-October 2013, an ideal time to be in USA's Yellowstone National Park. Please stay in contact through our web site and join our mailing list at:
