East Yellowstone Chapter Fish Rescue

Bob Capron has been doing the Shoshone River fish rescue with the East Yellowstone Chapter of Trout Unlimited out of Cody, Wyoming, for 22 years. TU members and volunteers from the community gather each fall to net native Yellowstone cutthroat and other nonnative cutthroat, as well as brown and rainbow trout. An average of 5,000 to 6,000 fish are saved annually from irrigation ditches in the Bighorn Basin. The fish end up in the ditches and would perish each fall when the canals go dry or freeze. For those wondering, the largest fish to show up was a 29-inch brown. All fish are returned to the section of the Shoshone River where the canal originated.

Not Mine, Ours

The Smith River drainage is located south of Great Falls in Meagher and Cascade Counties of west-central Montana. The river drains the Big Belt Mountains on the west, and the Little Belt and Castle Mountains on the east. From the confluence of the North and South forks, the Smith River courses about 120 miles through a broad agricultural valley then into 45 miles of spectacular deep limestone canyon country. After leaving the canyon, the river rolls through a valley edged by rolling hills and comprised of grasslands and cultivated tracts.

A River's Reckoning

Paul Bruchez is a fifth-generation rancher whose family raises cattle in the upper reaches of the Colorado River near Kremmling, Colorado, where he also runs a private fly-fishing guide service.
“A River’s Reckoning” tells the story of Paul’s awakening to the importance of river conservation and the legacy of his family’s ranch when drought and urban water diversions deplete the Colorado River, threatening the ranch’s operations. When Art Bruchez, the family patriarch, is diagnosed with cancer, Paul and his younger brother Doug are forced to step in and take over.

Fish Counting

Several times a year Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited provides volunteers to assist with surveys of Salmon and Steelhead in the watersheds of our territory. This enjoyable and educational activity is simply a walk along (and sometimes in) a creek or river while making a few notes, and its a perfect outing for ages 12 and up*.
The form below can be used at any time of the year to let us know you’d like to help.

When most people think of salmon and steelhead, they think of the big roiling rivers of the west coast: the Sacramento, the American, the Klamath & Trinity, the Columbia. While it's true salmon first appear in those rivers as they return from the ocean, where many of them are actually headed is to the little creeks and ravines that run right through our backyards.
