A new bill that would identify California salmon & steelhead strongholds for protection has passed the California Legislature and is moving on to Governor Brown's desk.
Assembly Bill 2528 will allow California to identify strongholds for protection that are most resilient to the effects of climate change. These will likely include some of our last, best salmon and trout streams, such as the Eel and Smith, as well as spring-fed source areas like Mt. Shasta and Sierra mountain meadows.
Our partners at CalTrout are sending Governor Brown a letter to ask him to sign the bill now. Make sure you add your name.

The highly productive Langeri is home to endangered Sakhalin taimen as well as a rich commercial salmon fishery.
The Langeri has made a comeback thanks to our Russian partners winning an important court battle in 2015 against a local mining company that had altered and polluted the waterway. Check out our website to see some awesome underwater salmon footage of the river since its been restored.

Alaska Wild Salmon Day is an annual celebration of the Alaskan way of life. This year's celebrations big and small had an added layer of urgency and debate with Ballot Measure 1—the fish habitat protection measure—and the fate of Pebble Mine very much on peoples minds. @StandForSalmon
