By STORY AND PHOTOS BY CRAIG SPRINGER Guide Don Wolfley steers a small group to the place where the kokanee bite Heron: Kokanee salmon brought to state in 1963 There is no better light than that which comes angular. The glory of the morning is the sun's radiance, moving and ever-changing. It's 7 a.m. and the radiant light is in play and shadows are long. I'm aft in a large pontoon boat on Heron Lake near Chama. Light winds fetch up little silver waves. I'm baiting shoepeg corn...

CHINOOK LANDING, Ore. -- On his first cast of the season, Jim Walker pitched a lure resembling a baby salmon into the dark green waters of the Columbia River and - BAM! - hooked a 24-inch fish with a $4 bounty on its head. But alas, "we didn't hook another one all day," the 73-year-old retiree said. It may not always be easy, but fishermen who can fill their coolers can also fill their pockets - some getting nearly $40,000 - for helping to control the most voracious predator of baby salmon in...

BUCKLEY, Wash. (AP) - It was simple surgery, done in four minutes from a makeshift operating room floating on the Puyallup River. Biologist Andrew Berger sliced open a young steelhead and tucked a vitamin-sized transmitter into the folds of its belly. As a colleague pumped water into the fish's gasping mouth, Berger quickly stitched the wound closed so the 8-inch smolt could continue its journey out to sea. Berger and other biologists with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians hope the delicate...

CASCADE LOCKS, Ore. -- In his way, C404 is kind of cute, with those sea-lion whiskers, soft brown eyes and furry little head. But to many he is a sea lion either from hell - or from Harvard. C404 has driven the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Bonneville Dam to near distraction as he and his ilk sit at the base and munch salmon gathered to continue upriver to spawn. Numerous sea lions head for the dam each spring, but C404 is in a class by himself. He has figured out how to get into fish...

GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The federal government has cut back the critical habitat for 19 species of threatened and endangered Pacific salmon, arguing that an earlier designation demanded by environmentalists was poorly executed and that voluntary habitat improvements will work better. The move announced Friday reduces the miles of protected river in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California by 80 percent - from 167,700 miles to 33,300. In those areas, activities such as logging, construction and...

PICTURED ROCKS NATIONAL LAKESHORE, Mich. -- Barely noticeable beneath a wooden foot bridge, the wire antenna stretched across the gurgling Mosquito River is on the lookout for one of the Great Lakes' most mysterious fish: the coaster brook trout. A century and a half ago, portions of the Lake Superior shoreline teemed with coasters - brook trout that, for reasons still unknown, migrate into the big lake instead of remaining in tributary streams with other members of their species. But word...

The Brown Trout (Salmo trutta) is originally a European species of salmonid fish. It includes both purely freshwater populations, referred to Salmo trutta morpha fario and S. trutta morpha lacustris, and anadromous forms referred to as the sea trout, S. trutta morpha trutta. The latter migrates to the oceans for the majority of its life and returns to freshwater only to spawn. The specific handle trutta comes from the Latin trutta, meaning, literally, “trout”.
