Tom Stokely to Give Trinity River Presentation to Shasta-Trinity Fly Fishers May 14 in Redding

 

Tom Stokely from the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN, online at www.c-win.org) will give a presentation on the Trinity River to the Shasta-Trinity Fly Fishers on Wednesday May 14 at 5:30 PM at  the Park Marina Events Center, 1800 Park Marina Drive, Redding.

 

The presentation will include a history of the Trinity River Division of the Central Valley Project as well as efforts over the past 40 years to restore the river’s fisheries.  The Trinity River’s status as the largest tributary of the Klamath River and an artificial tributary of the Sacramento River will be discussed.   The current drought and plans to build Twin Tunnels under the Delta will significantly impact the Trinity River and its sometimes-vibrant salmon and steelhead fisheries.

 

Tom Stokely is a former Trinity County Natural Resources Planner for 23 years, now living in Mt. Shasta.   C-WIN assumed the role of protecting the Trinity River from Friends of Trinity River, which was dissolved in 2011 when its founder Byron Leydecker passed away.
