Initiative." This is an effort to protect and restore wild
steelhead that used to be abundant in streams in Washington, Oregon,
California, Idaho and Alaska. Now, 70% of the wild steelhead
populations in these state require federal protection. We must
act now if we are to preserve remnants of the original runs in streams
in our area. To see what Trout Unlimited is doing and see how you
