With the winter steelhead season in full swing in the pacific northwest, the Wild Steelhead Coalition has drawn up a neat infographic and pledge reminding us that special care should be taken when handling fish for thier safe return as many populations of these wild fish are in dire straits.

Also check out April Vokey’s podcast with contributor Dave McCoy for a great dialouge on the topic.

Remember all fish for that matter, should be handled with respect and kept underwater as much as possible.

We can all strive for change in the culture and mindset regarding the handling of fish when we’re releasing them.
