Knowledge is power. When it comes to fishing, the more you ‘know’ about your quarry, the more ‘power’ you have to not only catch them, but to protect them as well.
That’s why we love TU’s Wild Steelheaders United’s Science Friday series of posts to keep us current on the latest on one of our favorite (but most misunderstood) species, steelhead!
Our pal, steelhead authority, and Alaska West alum, Nick Chambers, recently put together a fascinating write-up for the Wild Steelheaders United blog on some recent findings regarding a significant difference in fat-content between summer and winter steelhead, and how it relates to their respective life histories.
Its a great read for anyone who cares about steelhead and we highly suggest checking it out by clicking right here.
