How You Catch And Release Fish: It Matters

By: Nov 25, 2013 | Author: Tucker Ladd
Photo: Will Rice Here is an interesting article we came across last week about catch-and-release landing practices for steelhead on the Gink and Gasoline blog.  If what these biologists found out about the vulnerability of big BC steelhead has any overlap on what can happen to trout if they are not landed and/or released properly, it makes you think a bit.  Here is an excerpt: “Common landing practices can kill fish without the angler ever knowing.
