The Destination Angler Podcast

The Destination Angler podcast is THE podcast for anglers who travel. With Steve Haigh 

We go to the source, the local guides & experts, to build your knowledge of top fishing locations around North America.

Oct 14, 2021

Today we have a special edition of the Destination Angler Podcast on a very important issue affecting our cold-water fisheries – climate change.   Like many of you, over the past few years, I’ve been watching the news and hearing more and more about our climate.  No matter where you stand on man-made or natural, it’s hard to ignore things seem to be warming up, especially this past summer, which was the hottest summer on record.   

As I began to look into this I came across a report on the Impact of Global Warming on Trout in the Interior West that 50% of cutthroat trout habitat will be gone by 2080 if nothing is done. Can you imagine a world where half of our Cutthroat trout habitat is gone?   

To help us better understand climate change, our guests are Helen Neville, Senior Scientist, and Sara Porterfield, Water Policy Associate with Trout Unlimited.  We debunk fact from fiction, the impact of our warming climate on our cold-water fisheries, and most importantly what we can do about it. 

With Host, Steve Haigh
