By Andrew Weeks, The Times-News, Twin Falls, Idaho Aug. 4--Sometimes nature can use a little boost. High water levels and faster flows along parts of the Snake River -- such as the Hagerman stretch below Lower Salmon Falls Dam -- is giving a boost to young steelhead trout and salmon as they make their way to the Pacific Ocean. "That's why the water is up," said Randy McBride, owner of High Adventure River Tours in Hagerman. Water levels along McBride's 10-mile float tour, from...

By Michelle Dupler, Tri-City Herald, Kennewick, Wash. Aug. 4--David Arnold wonders what the world would be like if small, local food producers were lost. The Columbia Basin College history instructor believes independent farmers and fishermen interact directly with nature in a way corporate farms and fisheries don't, and that the loss of small producers means society as a whole is becoming disconnected from the food people consume. "I ascribe to the belief that local communities can...

By Stephen Speckman Deseret News On its face, the trace amounts of synthetic hormones and "personal care products" found in two popular trout fishing streams in Utah sounds a little like a list made for a stop at the pharmacy or grocery store. The list includes Prozac, Ibuprofen and Deet, along with drugs that control cholesterol, an active ingredient in anti-bacterial soap, an anti-seizure medication and a synthetic hormone used in birth control. And, not available in stores, natural...

By Al Jones, The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Miss. Jul. 27--The recent Midwest flood continues to dampen the South Mississippi fishing report, but things are getting better. Toss in Hurricane Dolly making landfall near the Texas/Mexico border, and things should continue to improve through Labor Day. Before Dolly and the arrival of flood waters through the Mississippi River, speckled trout were plentiful from the Louisiana Marsh through Chandeleur Island as well as Cat Island. Chandeleur,...

GRAYLING, Mich. _ If you're among those who've decided to vacation in Michigan rather than make more expensive trips out of state, and you also happen to like trout fishing, you probably couldn't pick a better year. Rain and cool temperatures aren't the stuff of a tourism promoter's dreams, but they're just what the doctor ordered for making trout and trout anglers happy. It might have been late July, but the air temperature was 63 and the water 55 on a recent trip on the Manistee River...

Maybe it's a little silly to compare Fluidigm Chief Executive Gajus Worthington to the salmon he grew up catching in Alaska. The same salmon that would leave home to make a long and circuitous trip just to end up back where they started. Worthington, after all, hasn't literally wound up back in Alaska. He's still toiling at his 140-person start-up in South San Francisco _ a company that makes a tiny device that he says will revolutionize all manner of biological testing. But after...

A federal judge has concluded that California's water operations are driving some salmon runs toward extinction -- but he declined to intervene. The order, issued late Friday by U.S. District Judge Oliver Wanger in Fresno, contained both good news and bad news for environmentalists and commercial salmon fishing advocates, representatives of those groups said. Although they did not win immediate measures to protect the fish, the judge's conclusions mean regulators will be forced to impose...

SALMON have taken advantage of summer flood conditions to move well upstream in both the River Usk and River Wye. Grant Holmes caught his first salmon, a 15lb fish that rose to a fly, when he fished the Glanwye beat and two other anglers caught fish here. Other stretches of the Wye where salmon were landed included the Rocks, Gromain and Golden Mile beats. River Usk salmon have been going over the weir at Brecon and several fish have been caught at Talybont. Cardiff Reservoirs Fly...

The scenery was breathtaking, the fishing spectacular. And the people two Minnesota men encountered along their 7,000-mile, three-week trek in small floatplanes from Minnesota to Alaska and back were simply unforgettable. "The mountains, oceans and fishing was phenomenal, but I think the people is what we'll remember 20 or 30 years from now," said pilot Wolfgang Greiner, 52, of Bloomington. "We ran into open, generous people every day." Their itinerary would make an angler_or pilot_drool....

By STAFF, Herald Sixty thousand salmon were released from the McKinnons Stream hatchery yesterday. The Salmon Enhancement Trust Spokesperson Phil de Joux said the fish had been raised till they reached the optimum weight of about 65g. The fish would go out to sea for about three years before returning to the Rangitata River. The hatchery fish had been clipped earlier in the year and Mr de Joux hoped to see between 1 and 4 per cent of them return to the hatchery. It is the third...

Brown Trout, Salmo trutta
2013-10-15 12:46:40

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”. The lacustrine morph of...

Australian salmon are medium-sized perciform marine fish of the small family Arripidae. Four species are recognized, all within the genus Arripis; they are found in the waters off southern Australia (including Tasmania) and New Zealand. Despite the common name, Australian salmon are not related to the salmon (family Salmonidae) of the Northern Hemisphere; the former were named so by early European settlers after their superficial resemblance to the salmoniform fishes. Relatively long-lived...
