The Trinity River - Leslie Ajari
 
03:21
The steelhead and salmon runs of northern California are legendary. However, these runs are now a fraction of their former numbers. Drought, development, dams, and water diversions have all contributed to reducing populations and angling opportunities, especially in coastal streams north of San Francisco -- a region often referred to as the Lost Coast. Yet good fish habitat remains here, and some rivers continue to offer premier angling opportunities for wild steelhead. A coalition of sportsmen groups, conservation organizations, business and property owners, fisheries scientists, tribes, and community members along the Lost Coast has come together around a landmark proposal: to protect and restore the last, best wild steelhead and salmon habitat on public lands in Trinity, Humboldt, Del Norte, and Mendocino counties. The clean, cold water that flows from these lands and the sporting assets they provide are a key part of California’s unique outdoor heritage. Join us in this movement today, to protect and improve the best of what’s left for Lost Coast steelhead and salmon. http://www.tu.org/wsu-action?vvsrc=%2fPetitions%2f761%2fRespond

The threat of losing our public lands looms large. That threat grows, passing like wildfire through halls of Congress and state capitols, spreading its invasive rhetoric in our communities. People with soft hands and expensive suits tell us “It’s just transfer. It’s not like we’re selling them.” It’s not just transfer. And it is a big deal. tu.org/publiclands

In Idaho’s Upper Salmon River Basin, the Yankee Fork has long-suffered as a river which is unable to recover from dredge-mining and timber harvest that occurred during the area’s gold-rush, around the turn of the 20th century. Join in watching this chronicle of how a large collaborative group, including TU, has been working since 2009 to restore the habitat that the Yankee Fork’s declining salmon, steelhead, and native fish populations need for survival.

Wild Trout: A Montana Fish Story
 
12:52
In the 1970’s, young Montana biologist Dick Vincent discovered that stocking hatchery-reared trout on top of wild trout populations in the Madison River actually suppressed trout fishing. Based on his research, the state of Montana prohibited stocking streams occupied by wild trout populations turning fisheries managers’ attention to restoring habitat quality after decades of pollution, damming, and drying up streams. The shift in focus to quality stream habitat changed the trajectory of Montana’s legendary trout fisheries from a steady decline to world class. Since Montana’s wild trout policy took hold, angler conservationists with Trout Unlimited and its partners have unleashed four decades of restoring streams and the quantity and quality of the cold, clean waters trout and anglers depend upon. Wild Trout: A Montana Fish Story chronicles Montana’s conversion to wild trout fisheries and the profound changes still evident in our beloved trout fisheries.

Triple Creek
 
06:42
In the late 1990’s the Okanogan Highlands of north central Washington suffered extreme flooding and downcutting on Myers Creek, incising the stream over 10 feet in some areas. This decimated an extensive beaver dam complex and wetland landscape deeply cherished by the local community for its beauty and biological diversity. The loss of these beaver dams and the floodplain wetland habitat they provided for native redband trout, great blue heron, amphibians, beaver and countless other species was too tragic to leave unremedied.

Trout Unlimited -- Helping to Train Bristol Bay's Next  Generation of Fly Fishing Guides
 
05:23
Nine youngsters from the Bristol Bay region took part in the 2010 Bristol Bay Fly Fishing and Guide Academy sponsored in part by Trout Unlimited Alaska and the Nushagak-Mulchatna Wood-Tikchik Land Trust. The goal of the academy was to train local youth to work in Bristol Bay's lucrative sport fishing industry and to become conservation ambassadors for their beautiful but threatened region. Bristol Bay offers world-class angling opportunities. It is also where developers want to build one of the world's largest copper mines, a high-risk project called Pebble that could destroy Bristol Bay's salmon and trophy rainbow trout runs.

Documenting Salmon in Alaska's Most Threatened Watershed
 
05:49
Fisheries biologist Sarah O"Neal spent the summer of 2009 documenting the presence of juvenile salmon in the Bristol Bay watershed where developers want to build the proposed Pebble gold and copper mine. It's part of a study funded by The Nature Conservancy and Trout Unlimited. O'Neal and her supervisor, Carol Ann Woody, PhD, have documented salmon in 92 miles of streams and rivers near the Pebble deposit that were previously not known to contain these anadromous fish. What the research shows is that salmon are present virtually everywhere around where the massive open-pit mine would be built. Conservationists, including Trout Unlimited and its partners, hope the research will lead to the protection of these important freshwater spawning and rearing grounds for Bristol Bay salmon. Bristol Bay produces the world's largest sockeye salmon runs. If Pebble is built, the mine would likely expose the region to acid mine drainage and other industrial discharges that threaten to harm Bristol Bay's prolific salmon, rainbow trout, Dolly Varden and other fish species. This video accompanies an article about the research in the Spring 2010 issue of Trout Magazine by Paula Dobbyn.

Sun River - Montana
 
02:13
Over the years, the Sun River has suffered from chronic dewatering and sediment pollution from the aptly-named Muddy Creek. In an exemplary public-private partnership, the Sun River Watershed Group’s members worked with the Bureau of Reclamation, the Coca-Cola Company, and the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) to restore Sun River flows and reduce sediment. Key to the success of the public-private partnership was Reclamation’s Cooperative Watershed Management Act funding, which provided the Sun River Watershed Group with the capacity to help the Fort Shaw Irrigation District undertake ambitious infrastructure improvements with the goal of not only increasing the reliability of the District’s irrigation water delivery, but also to restore flows to the Sun River through the conserved water. Funded through Reclamation’s WaterSmart program, together with matching funds from the Coca-Cola Company and Montana’s DNRC, it was the partnership that brought together the diverse funding sources and led to a project with benefits to both irrigation and river flows.
