A River's Reckoning

Paul Bruchez is a fifth-generation rancher whose family raises cattle in the upper reaches of the Colorado River near Kremmling, Colorado, where he also runs a private fly-fishing guide service.
“A River’s Reckoning” tells the story of Paul’s awakening to the importance of river conservation and the legacy of his family’s ranch when drought and urban water diversions deplete the Colorado River, threatening the ranch’s operations. When Art Bruchez, the family patriarch, is diagnosed with cancer, Paul and his younger brother Doug are forced to step in and take over.

Fish Counting

Several times a year Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited provides volunteers to assist with surveys of Salmon and Steelhead in the watersheds of our territory. This enjoyable and educational activity is simply a walk along (and sometimes in) a creek or river while making a few notes, and its a perfect outing for ages 12 and up*.
The form below can be used at any time of the year to let us know you’d like to help.

When most people think of salmon and steelhead, they think of the big roiling rivers of the west coast: the Sacramento, the American, the Klamath & Trinity, the Columbia. While it's true salmon first appear in those rivers as they return from the ocean, where many of them are actually headed is to the little creeks and ravines that run right through our backyards.

North Fork American River Cleanup

We will be having a clean up on the North Fork American River at Iowa Hill Bridge as part of the Great Sierra River Clean Up on Sat. Sept 16... Contact Bill Templin for details.

Hope you all are doing well! I am happy to inform you that "The Arcade Creek Project: A Mosaic of Sustainability" is having an extremely successful festival run. We've only been in the festival circuit for just a few months and have already been accepted to 10 film festivals around the country!

However, what I'm most excited to tell you about is that our WORLD PREMIERE (the film's first public appearance) will be right here at the Sacramento Film and Music Festival! The event will take place at the Jean Runyon Theatre in the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium (1515 J Street, Sacramento) on Saturday, September 23 at 10:00 AM. The world premiere is every film's most important event, and of course, since you all are the reason the documentary became a success, we would love for you to attend.
