Saving Salmon One Log at a Time

The Nature Conservancy has been doing some interesting work in the last three years on the Garcia River, in Mendocino County.  They’ve been cutting down trees and strategically placing them in the river, to create log jams.  These log jams grow naturally, as woody debris is flushed down stream by high winter flows and then trapped.  Log jams create cover, deep pools, clean gravel, and shelter from high flows, which are all extremely important for Salmon survival.

My name is Jeremy Quinlan and I am the producer of the upcoming Spey fishing for Wild Steelhead movie called THE GRAB! I have worked in the film and television industry since the mid-ninties and have been a dedicated fly fisherman even longer. To merge my work and my passions together I embarked on a mission to make a movie that is all wild... all California... all the time. THE GRAB! will entertain and enlighten its' audience about the life, sport and conservation of Wild Steelhead and other anadromous fish in California and the Pacific Northwest. Check it out, feel THE GRAB!
