Au Sable River is Under Attack Posted on February 27, 2016 by michoutdoors_chuck This will be a short post explaining
River Wide is a short film by Arbiter Creative and produced by Bo Roberts Leung, telling us about a LNG Proposal planned on Lelu Island on the mouth of the Skeena River.
Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC is not only responsible for trout stockings in British Columbia, but it also invests on studies which can potentially improve our fisheries. This video provides an overview of a study which looks at behaviours of different strains of rainbow trout.
While the northwest quadrant of California receives a lot of annual rainfall compared to other parts of the state, coastal streams are often reduced to a trickle by late summer. That trickle is enough to sustain young steelhead and coho through the summer before they make their migration to the ocean in the fall, if we are able to keep that water in the stream.
The once-prolific runs of coho salmon and steelhead along California’s north and central coast have declined precipitously, and California’s coho salmon are now endangered with extinction with an estimated population of just 5,000 adult fish spawning every year.
CHROME, the new film from Conservation Hawks, celebrates the joy and passion of fly fishing for steelhead while educating anglers on the looming threats of climate change and ocean acidification. The movie, which features Tom Rosenbauer, Dylan Tomine, Hannah Belford, Kate Taylor, Tim Romano and Todd Tanner, focuses on our responsibility to protect cold, clean waters, and to stand up for future generations.
Salmon Wars is a documentary about things the Salmon go through to get back to their home waters, and how the Hatchery fish loose out as well as the wild ones. There are so many dams that need to be removed or at least some sort of fish ladders made on them so that these Salmon can get above the dams as to make a comeback!
Trout Unlimited completed the Little Truckee river fish habitat improvement project on over 3 miles of the Little Truckee River, a world-class wild trout fishery loved by many.
Restoring tributary streams to big river systems not only improves fish habitat, it makes fishing better … a lot better
This Documentary is an insight on how the salmon farms in BC are destroying the wild salmon stocks that are native here and how the government is trying to keep it a secret.
We recently completed the following documentary of the Ringwood Fish Culture Station processes after following the efforts of volunteer group from the Metro East Anglers for the past year.
This video, now being shown at the Sportsman Show in Toronto, shows the full process from egg collection to releasing reared salmon and trout back into the tributaries of Lake Ontario.
This should be of interest to all outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy the great Lake Ontario fishery we have today.
2014 WINNER: TWO Tellys, and Communicator Awards, AND Nominated for an Emmy! Great Lakes Clean Water Organization and Stone Bridge Productions teamed up to produce this 27 minute documentary about the need to dispose of unused, unwanted drugs, in the most environmentally sound way. This documentary aired on Michigan PBS stations recently, and will be shown in multiple film festivals Summer 2014. Thanks to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality for supporting this program and film project!
The Salmon-Trout River in the Yellow Dog Plains is a special untouched area in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It is home to one of the last spawning locations in the America for the Coaster Brook Trout. This area and the Trout that come here are under attack by an environmentally damaging sulfide mine by Kennecott Eagle Minerals, who are known for their disregard for environmental safety practices. Please watch this video to be informed.
In many rivers throughout the U.S., outdated and environmentally unsound culverts block fish passage, in essence creating a series of dams on small tributaries to larger rivers. These culverts negatively impact fish spawning, block fish passage into these tributaries, and take away miles upon miles of fishable water. By repairing existing culverts, or by replacing these culverts altogether, fish are once again able to swim upstream. The process is simple, and highly cost effective. In place of small, often elevated culverts, larger culverts are buried halfway into the streambed and filled with a natural bottom. This creates a more ecologically friendly passage for fish, and opens up miles of spawning grounds, habitat, and fishable water. Every dollar you donate will be used to improve these streams, and the impact will be felt by fish—and anglers—all across the country for years to come!
New Zealand has some of the best trout fishing in the world!
Every year, thousands of international visitors wade pristine rivers in search of the freshwater game fish.
Large brown trout abound some back-country streams, and feisty rainbows reach weights of double figures in many regions. But there’s a problem facing New Zealand fishing, and it’s toxic, very toxic.
I feel that this is something everybody should know about, simply because of the damage it can and will cause to our fish not just Steelhead but other species that spawn in these waters!!
Watch this stunning 4-minute video on the reintroduction of bull trout to the Clackamas River, Oregon!!!!! The video tells the story of the diligent efforts of fish biologists to once again see bull trout flourish in waters where they were eliminated over 50 years ago. The video was funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and produced by Freshwaters Illustrated, an Oregon based not-for-profit organization whose goal is to raise aquatic awareness through photo, video and film.
