The Problem


Salmon populations from the Sacramento Basin 1985 to 2017.  Trend line is clear and it’s not good.

All increases in population correlate to increased rain and snow two years prior when the salmon were babies trying to survive. 

The members of the Golden Gate Salmon Association recently decided to change the name of the organization to the Golden State Salmon Association. The change comes as a way to signal our interest in restoring Central Valley salmon runs throughout their entire habitat stretching all the way up the Sacramento Valley to Keswick Dam and all the way down the San Joaquin River.
