California Trout is a San Francisco-based conservation group with a mission to ensure resilient wild fish in healthy waters for a better California. They are the only organization focused exclusively on protecting and restoring wild trout, salmon, steelhead and their waters throughout California. Here is a selection of videos showing some of the projects that they have worked on.
This short film by Conservation Hawks follows six adventurous anglers as they visit a remote North American Steelhead river in 2015 - the film highlights not only the magic of the river, the fish and the scenery, but also addresses the challenges that they face - climate change, and ocean acidification, which threaten the very existence of this delicate ecosystem. The film is accompanied by a petition to the US Congress to protect steelhead and salmon in the USA - you can sign the petition, or read about the project on the film's website, and we encourage you to do so!
