Steelhead Fishing Report and Restoration Card

Program Overview

The purpose of the Report Card program is to gather angler information which is used by the Department in making fisheries management and regulatory decisions, as well as to track angling trends over time. The information submitted by steelhead anglers directly influences the way your steelhead rivers are managed.

Funds generated from the Report Card sales are dedicated to supporting the program as well as funding habitat restoration projects that help conserve, monitor, and recover steelhead populations statewide. Because the funds are generated by steelhead anglers, funded restoration projects not only must benefit steelhead, but also must have a direct or indirect benefit to the angler.
