As disturbing as it sounds, locals who fish the Umpqua River in Oregon are once again trying to petition the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to allow retention of native winter steelhead. Over the years we have had to fight this battle again and again and as annoying as it is, we must continue to fight for these native fish. Please contact ODFW and let them know how vital this resource is to the Pacific Northwest and why it brings back anglers despite it being a no kill fishery.
