San Francisquito Creek is an endangered river and American Rivers and Beyond Searsville Dam are encouraging anglers to take a minute to sign a petition to encourage Stanford University save this river by removing Searsville Dam. Owned by Stanford, this is an obsolete dam that is blocking steelhead migration and wreaking havoc on the local ecosystem.
From American Rivers:
“Searsville Dam endangers one of San Francisco Bay’s last wild and federally protected steelhead trout runs that cannot migrate past the barrier to their historic spawning grounds. The dam harms other threatened wildlife and also degrades water quality and habitat by stopping stream flow and spreading non-native species and degraded water from the artificial reservoir created behind it.”
