Need a little inspiration to go out and do something good for your local waters? Look no further than 89-year-old Stan Griffin, who was just honored by Trout Unlimited as one of the ten people who have had the greatest impact on salmon and trout fisheries in the past fifty years. “His major accomplishments include orchestrating the removal of Roy’s Dam in Lagunitas Creek, restoring fish passage over the Healdsburg Dam on the Russian River, promoting regulation of gravel mining operations in the Russian River and calling attention to the threats of diversions and illegal dams to the North Coast’s fisheries.” Mark Prado in the Marin Independent Journal.
