Film: The Plight of Smith River Steelhead in “Eternally Wild”

Eternally Wild from California Trout on Vimeo.

We have been eagerly awaiting the release of “Eternally Wild” — the short film from Keith Brauneis and CalTrout on the state of the Smith River. Now it’s here.

From CalTrout:

“Eternally Wild is a short film about California’s iconic Smith River, its steelhead, its history and its current plight.

Here there are no dams, no wretched clear-cut blocks, no mitigating hatcheries. Instead… ancient forest, iconic redwoods and a powerful symbol of freedom — THE SMITH.

But 4,000 acres of the pristine North Fork are threatened by a giant toxic nickel mine operation.

The Red Flat Nickel Corporation has applied to sink 59 drill holes that would pave the way for one of the largest nickel mines in the Western United States. The film, by Keith Brauneis Productions and California Trout, examines current conditions and discusses future threats and asks just how much protection is enough?”

  1. Didn’t watch this yet, but apparently you did not tag this in “trout,” “fishing” or “fly fishing.” How are readers to find this video?
