Angler Science

A short video on the Trout Unlimited Angler Science program

Five hundred miles. That’s a pretty significant distance, right? Now, imagine swimming that far.

That’s how many river miles will re-opened to native steelhead in the Klamath River under the terms of a revised agreement between the federal government, the states of California and Oregon, and the utility company PacifiCorp.

The amended Klamath Hydropower Settlement Agreement, and the Klamath Power and Facilities Agreement were signed today at the mouth of the Klamath River by Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, NOAA Administrator Kathryn Sullivan, Gov. Edmund G. Brown, Jr., of California, Gov. Kate Brown of Oregon and PacifiCorp CEO Stefan Bird.

Under the new-and-improved KHSA, four old, unproductive hydropower dams on the Klamath River will be removed beginning in the year 2020. This action will open up 500 miles of habitat for steelhead and some 420 miles for salmon.

Member Survey 2015

We are striving to make the Sac-Sierra Chapter of Trout Unlimited better for our members. In order to do that we need your help. Please take a few minutes to take the survey to help us better align the chapter goals with your expectations.

Presidential action will permanently protect water supply, habitat, and sporting opportunities in Northern California

EMERYVILLE, Calif.—Trout Unlimited (TU) today applauded President Obama’s designation of 330,000 acres of the Berryessa Snow Mountain complex of public lands in the southern Mendocino mountain range in northern California as a National Monument.

TU is the nation’s oldest and largest sportsmen’s organization dedicated to conserving and restoring trout and salmon and their habitat. TU said national monument designation would strengthen protection of the unique fish and game habitats found in the Berryessa Snow Mountain area, and sustain and enhance opportunities for fishing and hunting into the future.

“TU members and California sportsmen are proud to have played a role in protecting the Berryessa Snow Mountain area, and conserving fishing and hunting opportunity for future generations,” said Brian Johnson, California Director for Trout Unlimited. “Thank you, President Obama, for protecting this amazing landscape and ensuring California sportsmen will have access to clean water and intact habitat that support excellent fishing and hunting opportunities for decades to come.”

The American River Conservancy, ARC, is campaigning to permanently protect over 10,000 acres of headwaters land, and add up to 3,055 acres to the Granite Chief Wilderness. The lands to be acquired have extraordinary resource value including the Middle Fork American River, Talbot Creek, Rice Creek, and Dolly Creek. Collectively, these streams provide a highly productive nursery for rainbow trout, producing over 4,200 young-of-the-year trout per mile!

The El Dorado Chapter of Trout Unlimited wants to help this important cause. The ARC are currently $750,000 from their goal to acquire the properties. A donor has offered a $1,000 challenge to the chapter and will match our donations up to $1,000. Please help by sending a donation before July 31.

Please make checks payable to Trout Unlimited and send them to Trout Unlimited, P.O. Box 1605, Placerville, CA 95667 before July 31.
