Wild Thompson Steelhead sign now

Currently, the Bristish Columbia Ministry of Environment (MOE) does not support hatchery augmentation of Thompson River steelhead, a position supported by the Steelhead Stream Classification Policy (SSCP at http://bit.ly/deIhkI).

The SSCP states that streams designated as wild will be managed to maintain and protect the abundance, distribution and genetic diversity of indigenous steelhead stocks.

MOE classifies the Thompson as a wild steelhead stream. Thompson steelhead are one of the few stocks of the redband subspecies of rainbow trout still regarded as wild as they have not been exposed to any significant period of hatchery augmentation.

Some BC angler conservation and community groups are advocating for a hatchery solution to the Thompsons problems.

We support wild Thompson River steelhead and are opposed to any hatchery augmentation.

    City/Country Canada Why not have it open until October 31 and close it then if the returns are low... if they are low, few fish would have been caught and the majority of the run is yet to come in. Additionally, having anglers on the river would be anoth
