About the Smith River :
Located on California's North Coast, in Del Norte County, the Smith is California’s only major un-dammed river. Its natural flows, protected habitat and lack of significant hatchery influence combine to make the Smith the premier stronghold for wild salmon and steelhead in the state. The Smith River watershed exemplifies the rich biological diversity of the Klamath/Siskiyou region. Its floral diversity supports an assemblage of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish including black bear, mountain lion, wolverine, northern spotted owl, endangered Del Norte salamander and tailed frog, chinook salmon, coho salmon, steelhead trout and coastal cutthroat trout.
