The Matilija Dam may finally meet its end

cover-090816The Matilija Dam which was prominently featured in the film DamNation may soon meet the fate of some other dams featured in the film.

Ventura’s settlers and native populations thrived on fish from the Ventura River. The steelhead trout traversed the winding path through to the estuary, from the mountains to the ocean, on their way to and from spawning, and fishermen took advantage of the bounty.

This, of course, was prior to 1947 when the Matilija Dam was constructed.
