“Trout on the Rise — Rehabilitation, Restoration and Recreation in the Interdam Reach” is the subject of the next CreekSpeak talk hosted by the Putah Creek Council. Presenter Steve Karr will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, in the Club Room at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. in Davis.

Karr, chairman of the board of Putah Creek Trout, will explain ongoing conservation work to improve and expand the cold-water wild trout fishery and recreational opportunities in the 4-mile reach of the stream that flows from Monticello Dam into Lake Solano (the Interdam Reach).

Over the years, dams, diversions, lawsuits, changing regulations and public access improvements have affected trout populations in Putah Creek. Karr will discuss how recent collaborations between private, public and nonprofit stakeholders have improved fishery conditions in the creek.

He will show footage of wild Putah Creek rainbow trout and share tips on where and how to fly-fish this trophy trout water. Guests may enter their names in a raffle to win a framed, limited-edition print of “Putah Creek Trout Life Stages” by nature illustrator and artist Tim Gunther.

Putah Creek Trout, a nonprofit agency dedicated to improving the environment and recreational experiences in the Interdam Reach. He is also a fly fisherman with more than 50 years of experience.

CreekSpeak talks — a six-month series of community talks about the nature, culture and history of the region — are free to Putah Creek Council members and open to the public. A $5 donation is requested from those who have not yet joined the council.
