"Almost a century ago, the Eel River was celebrated as one of the best fly-fishing rivers in California, " says Scott Greacen, Director of Friends of the Eel River. As the FERC relicensing process begins for PG&E's Potter Valley dam, Darren Mierau, Regional Director of California Trout talks with Greacen about their new campaign to educate its members about the Eel River's potential. 

Cal Trout suggests that "our Eel River is the best opportunity on the west coast for recovery of a major salmon and steelhead fishery."
