Coleman National Fish Hatchery Project

NCGASA began engaging with Coleman National Fish Hatchery after hearing about an excess of adult steelhead filling the raceways at the facility. These fish came into the hatchery in an overabundance. The plan was to hold them in captivity due to wild population influence and salmon smolt predation. The fish had been put into a holding pond after hatchery mitigation numbers were reached and the fish began to die at an alarming rate. These fish arrived at the hatchery as a result of a rain filled winter in 2017 and positive hatchery results. We have worked with the hatchery and government officials to make sure sportsmen, guides, and the fly fishing community have an ample opportunity to catch, harvest, and release these fish for future generations.

Porter Valley Project

The Potter Valley Project is a small hydropower project in the headwaters of the Eel River. It consists of two dams, a mile-long diversion tunnel, and a powerhouse with a 9.4 mw capacity. The project is located in the Eel River headwaters and diverts water out of the watershed into the Russian River. Removing this project is the necessary first step to fisheries recovery on the Eel River. Learn more about dam impacts to fisheries habitat & flow, local economy, energy production, and downstream safety here.
