In recent years, wild steelhead numbers have reached terrible new lows across much of their native range. Iconic rivers and watersheds like the Columbia and Snake, Umpqua, Olympic Peninsula, and Skeena have seen record-breaking low returns and unprecedented closures.

Now more than ever, steelheaders have a responsibility to step up to fight for wild steelhead and their home waters. Part of that work means investing in the organizations that are pushing hard for science-based policy, habitat restoration, hatchery reform, and dam removals. Climate change makes this work even more urgent.

The Wild Steelhead Coalition depends on the financial support of our partners, supporters, and members, but we also take the “coalition” part of our name seriously. There are many great organizations doing important work. Pick a few that fit your values, priorities, and home waters, and make sure you are supporting their work on behalf of these incredible fish and their beautiful home rivers.
