Hey everyone, I saw the video subforum but since it doesn't seem to be that active I thought I'd post this link here!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqGx9DABr6g

Here's a short video I made for a local nonprofit about steelhead trout and the efforts being made to keep em in our waters. There is some cool underwater footage of these fish so give it a look if you're interested.

I occasionally heard locals tell stories about legendary sized steelhead being pulled out of the creek and bay decades ago, but it seems that this is a rarity nowadays. Good news is that the genetic makeup of the local wild steelhead is so robust that they seem primed to bounce back if they're given the chance to. Mainly, low water levels are interfering with their spawning and rearing.

Fisherman definitely seem to be taking point on a lot of conservation efforts since these trout are such a blast to catch.

Hope you guys enjoy.

Glad you guys like it!

I think its just so cool how the steelhead is technically a rainbow trout, just one that was balsy enough to decide to journey out to sea.
