Many consider the North Coast of California to be the birthplace of salmonid fisheries restoration. Humboldt Steelhead Days’ primary purpose is to showcase and fundraise for this important work – and have some fun in the process!

Humboldt Steelhead Days is a countywide celebration of our iconic winter steelhead and the coastal rivers that nourish them. For a complete list of events, visit the Events tab or  News and Updates posts.

Restoration, Protection and Awareness

Proceeds from the fishing contest go toward protection, recovery, and restoration of our local watersheds. HSD strives to raise awareness about the amazing steelhead that continue to thrive in our waters and rivers. Photo Credit: Sean Jansen
