California’s Heritage and Wild Trout Program will be showcased when Stephanie Mehalick of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife presents a program Tuesday for the Fly Fishers of Davis. She’ll speak at 7:30 p.m. at Harper Junior High School, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.

As a biologist for the Heritage and Wild Trout Program, Mehalick helps oversee wild trout management statewide across California. The program is responsible for protecting and enhancing California’s wild and heritage trout resources while providing opportunities for high-quality wild trout angling.

Mehalick will talk about the mission, goals and accomplishments of the program, as well as angling opportunities and ways in which club members can be involved in restoration and conservation of wild trout fisheries.

The Heritage and Wild Trout Program was established in 1971 by the California Fish and Game Commission to protect and enhance quality trout fisheries sustained by natural reproduction. The commission adopted a wild trout policy that provides for the designation of “aesthetically pleasing and environmentally productive” streams and lakes to be managed exclusively for wild trout.

The commission also directed the department to study and identify waters that would provide quality wild trout angling for designation as wild trout waters. Wild trout populations in designated waters are to be managed with appropriate regulations to be “largely unaffected by the angling process.”

Mehalick has been with the program since 2007. A graduate of Syracuse University in New York, she began her fisheries career with the U.S. Forest Service in Alaska, conducting research and monitoring on salmonids and their freshwater habitats. After four years with the Forest Service, she moved to California and participated in a Lahontan cutthroat trout research study through UC Davis.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month in the multipurpose room at Harper Junior High. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests.

“If you’re interested in learning to fly fish, come to the meeting and ask anyone about our introductory and intermediate fly fishing courses,” a news release said. “The club is also working on a program for young fly fishers (under 16).”
