Spencer Tracy's Steelhead
Ben Marcus makes a hopeful jaunt up the once-famed Malibu Creek in California. “So, again, were there any fish in there? Any devout fly-fisherman driving across the Malibu Creek bridge or along Malibu Canyon has to wonder. Malibu Creek looks promising, and then there are stories of what it once was: an epic little steelhead river that would entice Spencer Tracy to halt production of shows when the fish were moving. But those days are long gone, slowly ended by the Rindge Dam that was built in 1926 and limited the steelhead run to the last two miles of the creek.” In the L.A. Times.
