This is a fish story about the steelhead trout that got away and then returned to Napa after a sojourn to the sea.
This threatened species journeys from the freshwater they are born in to the ocean and back to fresh water to spawn. Scientists have long assumed that adult steelhead in the Napa River are Napa natives.
But only this year has the Napa County Resource Conservation District (NCRD) verified scientifically that this case. Tiny tags implanted in the fish and an underwater antenna provided the proof.

Two Napa steelhead have beyond any doubt come home.
"That's what we had hopes for," NRCD senior biologist Jonathan Koehler said.
A thriving steelhead trout population in the Napa River would be a local triumph. Millions of dollars have been spent restoring fish-friendly habitat. State regulations require vineyard owners to reduce sediment runoff from their property to help steelhead and other fish.

Salmon River businesses brace for impact of suspended steelhead season

Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River was cut short this year, after a threat of a lawsuit from conservation groups forced the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to indefinitely suspend the season.
Businesses that rely on steelhead fishing are bracing for the suspension's economic impact and some are already feeling the effects.
The busiest times for steelhead fishing on the Salmon River are typically late fall and early spring. The season typically runs from approximately Sept. 1 to Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 to April 30. Fishing outfitters and guides along the river, from Salmon to Riggins, already are seeing spring booking cancellations due to the unknown status of spring steelhead season.

"It's going to hurt the whole community, all of the communities along the Salmon River and the Clearwater," said Jess Baugh, owner of Mountain River Outfitters, a family-owned fishing outfitter based in Riggins.

Investigators are examining whether the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife followed protocol before a power outage killed more than 6 million salmon at a Gig Harbor hatchery.

The Minter Creek Hatchery is like a nursery for salmon. The fish are raised from eggs all the way to juveniles ready for release.
The Gig Harbor hatchery suffered a catastrophic loss of more than 6 million Chinook salmon last week when a windstorm knocked out power, and a backup generator failed.
"These drawers each hold a little over 5,000 in each drawer. A portion of the population has suffocated. The rest of them are in fine shape and managed to get through this with us pumping some water into that head trough," explained South Puget Sound Hatchery Operations Manager Jim Jenkins.

Columbia, Snake salmon get three years of spring 'spill' help

Conservationists and commercial fishers cheered an agreement Tuesday among state, federal and tribal bodies to send more water over eight federally operated Northwest dams to aid endangered salmon.
Public power customers weren't so sure, though.
The agreement is intended to keep the contentious issue of how to protect juvenile fish migrating downstream on the Columbia and Snake rivers out of the courts for three years.

Targeting sea lions will help orcas, Columbia River salmon

When it comes to helping endangered orcas, Congress just knocked an important item off Washington state's lengthy to-do list.
The U.S. House and Senate have passed a measure that will make it easier to kill sea lions that feast on protected salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River basin. The bill will help protect the billions of government dollars already invested in salmon preservation, without causing long-term harm to sea-lion populations.

Get paid to fish?

The average payment among the top 20 fishermen was $29,000 each. The top angler was paid a total of $71,000.



More than $1.4 million was paid to fishermen who caught northern pikeminnow in the Columbia and Snake rivers.

[font=&amp]Biologists are trying to determine whether a warm, dry fall is responsible for a drop in the number of landlocked Atlantic salmon that swam up a Lake Champlain tributary in Vermont to spawn this fall or if there could be other reasons behind a five-year decline.[/font]

[font=&amp][/size]U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service statistics found that 42 salmon were trapped at the Winooski River fish passage this fall at the dam between Burlington and the city of Winooski where technicians trap the fish and release them upstream so they can continue to their spawning grounds.[/font]

A Norwegian company plans to build one of the world's largest land-based salmon farms in Belfast, a project that would create 60 jobs within two years and up to 140 once it is completed, according to the company's chief executive officer.

Nordic Aquafarms, an international developer of land-based aquaculture, has signed agreements to purchase 40 acres on the outskirts of the city and plans an initial investment of $150 million in the project.

Nordic Aquafarms CEO Erik Heim said Tuesday his company chose Belfast after a six-month search that started in Japan and China, then took stock of Ireland and Spain before settling on Belfast. He announced the plan at the University of Maine's Hutchinson Center.

Heim cited Maine's "pristine environment, cold water conditions, long history as a leader in the seafood industry and proximity to major consumer markets in the Northeast United States," as reasons for choosing the Belfast location.


This is to be locate on the banks of the Little River, which, I believe has a population of sea-run brown trout  :o
