Cooler water temperatures and rainfall has drawn Skamania steelhead into some Michiana streams and rivers.
Indiana Lake Michigan Biologist Ben Dickinson said his crews have been gathering several steelhead at the Trail Creek Weir in Michigan City and hope to be done soon.
The adult fish being collected will be stripped of eggs and milt to produce future steelhead stockings.
“We’re getting about 50 to 100 a day, so it’s been steady,” Dickinson said. “We’re hoping to finish up this week.”
