Apr 10, 2014

At 7 p.m. Friday, April 11, two weekends before Opening Day of fishing season, the Adopt A Stream Foundation and Snohomish County Parks are presenting a free showing of the 1969 classic short (30-minute) film “The Way of Trout” at the Northwest Stream Center Auditorium in Snohomish County’s McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett.

In advance of the film, you will be able to enjoy underwater scenes of the life cycle of salmon produced by Japan’s Hokkaido Television and Broadcasting.

“The Way of Trout” movie brings you underwater into the world of rainbow trout.

You will see scenes of a beautiful female trout’s day-to-day fight to survive from predators who at various stages of growth include aquatic insects, other fish, birds and animals.

And, only man, the ultimate predator, has the alternative to release her to spawn future generations.

This movie is the original award-winning, 16 mm classic production produced for Trout Unlimited.

“It was one of the first films to advocate “catch and release, ” Adopt A Stream Foundation Director Tom Murdoch said.

“You will really enjoy seeing this short film that features a wise old fly fisherman and a very large and beautiful female rainbow trout on the Northwest Stream Center’s big screen.”

After the movie, you can go on a short tour of the NW Stream Center’s Trout Steam Exhibit – the newest trout stream in the State of Washington.

Call 425-316-8592 to reserve a space.

This Streamkeeper Academy event is being conducted in partnership with Snohomish County Parks and Recreation and Surface Water Management.
