November Virtual Speaker Series: John McMillan
This month we welcome John McMillan, the Science Director for Trout Unlimited’s Wild Steelhead Initiative, to share lessons from the Elwha River and an overview on the state of steelhead.
John was raised along the banks of the Washougal River where he was indoctrinated into a fly-fishing family, which eventually lead to snorkeling, then to college and graduate school. Before coming to TU, John studied salmonids for the USFS, Hoh Indian tribe, Wild Salmon Center, and finally, with NOAA/NWFSC as part of the Elwha River dam removal project. His research and monitoring has often focused on the biology, behavior and ecology of steelhead and rainbow trout, with a particular interest in the mechanisms influencing why individual fish adopt particular life history strategies -- such as anadromy and residency – and why such life histories are critical to the resilience of wild steelhead. As a result, he has published several peer-reviewed manuscripts on steelhead and salmon science and has written books and book chapters about fish and fly fishing.
