From the archives: in a column dated July 15, 1978 I reported Trout Unlimited had proposed stocking steelhead, anadramous rainbow trout, in the Delaware River. At the time I said not to get too excited about the plan as restoring the shad run was a priority in the river and anglers seeing steelhead, as well as chinook and coho, head north to Lake Ontario and the Salmon River.
So if there was ever steelhead releases in our backyard river, I missed them. Anybody know what happened to the idea?
