    Tales of the Ventura River

    On Friday, we asked Ventura residents to Be a Steelhead Advocate, Report Illegal Fishing in the Ventura River. As a follow-up to that post we're pleased to share this 2007 video from the Matilija Coalition. It's pretty long but the stories within paint a vivid picture of what the river was like before factors like the Matilija Dam existed and southern steelhead were placed on the Endangered Species list. For those of you who live elsewhere, I think you'll find the video to be a neat slice-of-life from our little beach town -- and a good example for other dam-removal projects currently being debated around the country.
