CalTrout-Supported Broadcast (And DVD Giveaway) of Award-Winning Documentary Chronicles The Rise & Fall of CA’s Steelhead Fishery — And The Obsessed Anglers Who Created It
Rivers Of A Lost Coast is a brilliantly-told story about the rise and fall of California’s once-proud steelhead fisheries — viewed through the lens of two obsessive fly fishermen, who eventually become bitter rivals.
Justin Coupe and Taylor Palmer’s multiple-award-winning documentary paints an engrossing picture of the fishery (and the fishermen) using archival footage and interviews with figures like Russell Chatham.
Overlaying the story of the fishery are Bill Schaadt and Ted Lindner — obsessive steelhead fishermen whose relationship mirrors the decline of the fishery.
Critically acclaimed and visually stunning, Rivers Of A Lost Coast is a must-see film — and an excellent reminder of exactly what CalTrout and its partners have been fighting for all these years. That’s why CalTrout has stepped up to support the broadcast of ROTLC on San Francisco’s KQED (public broadcast).

“Lovingly crafted and filmed, it is both a fitting tribute and a clarion warning about what we all have to gain — and lose — when it comes to our fisheries.” –Dr. Todd Larson, Fishing for History
