Tippets: I-5 Steelhead Crossing, March Browns in Europe, River Projects and Fish Kills, Training Your Eyes
- Among the topics that the San Juan City Council will discuss with U.S. Rep. Ken Calvert is federal funding to preserve the southern steelhead trout. The local TU chapter hopes to “help migrating trout in Trabuco Creek get across I-5 to spawning grounds further north.”
- While fishing can be unpredictable in March and April, usually European anglers can count on a March Brown hatch, writes Laurent Guillermin.
- Freedom of Information requests show that run-of-river hydroelectricity projects are causing fish kills. The hydroelectric projects, which are touted to be more environmentally friendly than the traditional electric dam, may not be as safe as originally expected.
- Next time you or your partner releases a fish try and keep your eye on that fish as long as possible to help train your eyes to spot fish in the future, writes Kirk Deeter.
