first_imgPlants set out Saturday should fill out by summer, revealing a multi-colored steelhead trout beside Interstate 5. Volunteers and workers with the Washington State Department of Transportation help tend to the plants. Fish factso Steelhead trout, found along the Pacific Coast and in tributaries of the Columbia River, are ray-finned members of the salmonid family. They typically weigh about 8 pounds, but can reach 50 pounds. They’re born in fresh water, emigrate to the sea and return to their native fresh water to spawn. They are almost the same as rainbow trout, but rainbow trout stay in fresh water.o Unlike salmon, which die after spawning, steelhead can spawn several times.o Fishing for hatchery steelhead opened Thursday in the Columbia River between the Interstate 5 Bridge and Tongue Point.Plant sale raised $35,000+The Master Gardener Foundation of Clark County raised more than $35,000 at last weekend’s Mother’s Day plant sale.

Volunteer gardeners planted a large steelhead trout Saturday morning in the “Welcome to Washington” sign, and it looks to be the state’s biggest catch yet.After two years of planting the state fruit, the apple, this year’s annual planting took on the state fish. The apple was a simple but time-consuming design, because it was so large and filled in the entire outline of the state, said volunteer Sandy Burckhard. The steelhead is one of the most ambitious ideas the Master Gardener Foundation of Clark County has seen through.“Every year, we learn a little bit more,” said Burckhard, who’s in her third year of volunteering with the nonprofit foundation. “We’re doing better each year.”last_img read more
