In conjunction with Trout Unlimited’s Science Week, the cold water conservation group has released two short films highlighting their efforts across the nation. From Lahontan Cutthroat to Alaskan Steelhead, both of these films will leave you inspired to take action and help to preserve our nation’s cold-water resources.
From Trout Unlimited:
Twelve-thousand years ago, there was a lake – Lake Lahontan – that covered more than 8,500 square miles of the Great Basin. Most of the rivers and lakes there today were at some point tributaries to this giant lake, or wholly covered by it. What does that mean for a species that’s been in the Great Basin for more than 10 million years in one form or another?

At nearly 17 million acres, the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska is the country’s largest national forest. The Tongass includes more than 15,700 miles of clean, undammed streams and 4,100 lakes and ponds that provide optimal spawning and rearing conditions for the region’s abundant wild steelhead and salmon. Watch @troutunlimited latest film Anadromous Waters to find out more about the work being done to protect its steelhead.
