California’s Eel River used to be a healthy river teeming with wild salmon and steelhead, but has suffered in recent decades due to increased urbanization and resource extraction. The conservation group California Trout has mounted an effort to restore the river to its full potential, from the headwaters to the sea. Unlike many other western rivers, there are no hatcheries on the Eel River. This is a truly unique opportunity to restore full wild populations of fish to their native habitats.
