Steelhead Festival

After several years of coordination with Sonoma County agencies and businesses, the first Annual Wild Steelhead Festival is being conducted February 8–10, 2008 to bring public awareness to this threatened species. Help support our sister chapter by attending, and learn of the efforts being made to enhance their natural habitat through many fun and educational events during the three days. For more information visit http://healdsburgsteelheadfest.org or write to: Steelhead Fest, 327A Healdsburg Av, Healdsburg, CA 95448.

Thank you to the TU members who responded to the call for help to rescue fish from the poorly planned drainage of Prospect Island. The massive fish kill was very unfortunate and unnecessary but, as sometimes happens in various aspects of our lives, we learn from our mistakes. The agencies involved will undoubtedly be more careful in the future, and hopefully will not delay in accepting volunteer assistance as soon as it is offered and needed.

SB 670 Passes State Senate

UPDATE – On August 6th, Govenor Schwarzenegger sign SB 670 into law, placing an immediate moratorium on suction dredging until the California Department of Fish and Game develops and implements new suction dredge regulations that protect fisheries and water quality.  Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimted would like to thank everyone who helped make this happen.

SACRAMENTO – New protections for California’s people and environment are now only a signature away. Yesterday the State Senate joined the State Assembly in overwhelmingly passing SB 670 (Wiggins), a measure that will place a moratorium on the practice of a form of recreational gold mining known as suction dredging, with a bipartisan vote of 31-8.  SB 670 easily garnered the two-thirds vote in both houses of the State Legislature needed to send it to the Governor as a piece of “urgency” legislation which means it will go into effect immediately upon his signature.

Save Auburn Ravine Salmon and Steelhead

Save Auburn Ravine Salmon and Steelhead(sarsas.org) is trying to do with one stream, the Auburn Ravine, what must be done to all streams and rivers on the entire West Coast: make the entire length navigable for anadromous fish. Their goal is to work collaboratively and cooperatively to modify the twelve man-made barriers and six plus beaver dams on the Auburn Ravine to make them passable for fish.

SARSAS believes (as does TU!) that the health and well-being of Salmon is directly linked to that of people. If we improve the health and well-being of Salmon, we improve the health and well-being of mankind and therefore ourselves. Salmon are as resilient and adaptive as humans; when they can no longer adapt, neither can mankind.
