Male Speaker: On a misty summer morning, at a sport fishing marina on San Francisco Bay, a charter fishing boat chugs out toward open sea with it's cargo with eager but sleepy anglers. Robert Galia started out on his father's commercial fishing boat. Now he captains his own sport charters. This morning he heads out with his usual escort of seagulls.
Male Speaker: Every morning in fact, this is the way they greet us.
Male Speaker: Galia crescents his boat the El Dorado, City of Gold. But today, he and his passengers will be looking for flashes of silver, big pacific salmon. As the marine layer overcast begins to burn off, deck hands get their customers rigged and ready.
Male Speaker: Everybody put your bait on, get your weight on, make sure there is no knots in your leader. You're ready to drop in the water.
Male Speaker: There are long stretches of waiting, broken by occasional burst of activity, and for some success.
Male Speaker: Team work, team work.
Male Speaker: But it is prized as these magnificent fish are, few people can say where they came from.
Male Speaker: Not exactly. No.
Male Speaker: The Salmon known as King or Chinook caught in the cold pacific waters outside the golden gate began their journey hundreds of miles in London. For ages and through sheer instinct, more the 70% of the salmon caught off of Northern California, made their way to open water through California's largest river; a river that feeds and challenges magnificent fish, a river that also feeds the nation and challenges Californians, and a river of life which humans call the Sacramento.
Male Speaker: The Sacramento is the most important river in California.
Male Speaker: Water is the mother of everything.
Female Speaker: So no matter how big California grows, this water has to provide for all the trees, all the birds, all the animals, and the people.
Male Speaker: Without water, California would be Nevada.
Male Speaker: Without that river, we're tossed.
Female Speaker: It's this source of water that gives life to all things.
Jack Trout: Are you ready to go fishing? Let's go. Alright, let's go get him Chester, go ahead. I've always been fascinated by rivers and by water. It's my life. It's my life. Hi! I'm a fly fishing guide. I make my living working on this river. This river is my office.
The Sacramento River is an important resource to me, and I think to any Californian, because of its tremendous purity of water. This is the top of the food chain for the state of California as far as water is concerned. All the water starts up in mount chest to on the volcano.
Male Speaker: Often called the Golden State, much gold has been taken from the massive outlining North of California. But the real gold of California is not the yellow metal out of the earth, in fact the more valuable is the clean fresh water, the fall from the sky, because fresh water is the white gold of the Great Central Valley.
Male Speaker: One-fifth of the entire California land mass, an area nearly the size of Indiana, drains into the Sacramento basin. Recharged in the Spring when mountain snows from the cascades in the Sierra Nevada begin to melt into countless heavy water streams. The river begins its 400 mile journey.
In the northern regions, the river tumbles through narrow canyons, sometimes dropping a 100 feet per mile before it's chaotic descent is arrested by Chester dam, which contains California's largest landlocked source of water.
From Chester down, the Sacramento becomes largely teamed harnessed to do the work of humans. It rolls along nourishing the nation's fruit and vegetable basket and supporting a $100 million sport fishing industry. Joined by the American river at the state capital of Sacramento, the river makes a sweeping turn to the west and spreads out to form the largest estuary on the West Coast.
About half the Sacramento's water volume is diverted south here for farms in the San Wakeen valley in cities as far as south as Los Angeles. The rest pushes on through the Delta making its way to San Francisco Bay, and out through the Golden Gate to the Pacific.
