After nearly 100 years, steelhead trout are planning a comeback
|July 24, 2017 - KPCC's A Martinez interviews Tim Brick about the history and future of steelhead and native fish in the Arroyo Seco and the rivers of Southern California.|
Steelhead trout, in the San Gabriel mountains?
A hundred years ago, streams in the San Gabriel were stuffed full of them.
But a century of development and a series of major flood control projects decimated the Steelhead population.
Now, there's an effort to return the fish to local waters.
Tim Brick is Managing Director of the Arroyo Seco Foundation. He's spearheading the effort to reintroduce the steelhead trout to the area. He spoke to A Martinez about the importance of the Steelhead Trout to the area and the efforts being made to bring it back.
