Check out the new blog for Battle for the Klamath. I'll be posting updates on the status of the documentary and relevant articles there.

My documentary on the fight over salmon and water rights on the Klamath River is close to finished. A recent grant from the Pacific Pioneer Fund will help pay for the online and color correction.

The issues covered in the film - lack of enough water for all the players, poor federal and state policy and the fate of an endangered species - are all still very relevant. In fact, because southern Oregon didn't receive the deluge of rain that most of California experienced this winter, critical water shortages are predicted for the Klamath River Basin this summer. A huge problem for both man and fish.

Here's an article on the shortage of salmon due to low spawning returns to the Klamath River and its tributaries.
