"Swim!" said the mama fishy, "Swim if you can!" and they swam and they swam, back over the dam. --Lyrics from "Three Little Fishes" by Saxie Dowell, 1939 Jimmy Decker swears that even after the Rindge Dam was wedged into Malibu Canyon in 1926 to create a water supply for the beach colony, the steelhead continued to migrate upstream to spawn. "Those years, we'd get up to 50 inches of rain in one season," Decker, 71, recalls. "The water used to pour over the dam six to 10 feet deep."

Reporter Steve Hymon's March 1 interview with Jim Edmondson regarding the Rindge Dam and steelhead trout in Malibu Creek prompts this rebuttal: * There is no record or proof that steelhead ever migrated much farther than the site of the dam, which is to be expected as two or more waterfalls blocked such progress. * Steelhead thrived in Malibu Creek below the dam for more than 35 years after it was built in 1924.

There is no record or proof that steelhead ever migrated much farther than the site of the dam, which is to be expected as two or more waterfalls blocked such progress. Steelhead thrived in Malibu Creek below the dam for more than 35 years after it was built in 1924. Steelhead declined in Malibu Creek starting in the 1960s due to effluent flows from the Tapia sewage treatment plant and tainted water runoff from the urbanizing upper watershed.

Hope springs on two fronts that fishermen, distraught over the devastation of the Bridgeport Reservoir and East Walker River last fall, may soon reach accord with the Nevada farmers who took their water and ran the two prime big-fish fisheries dry. The reservoir "was pretty well wiped out," recalled California Trout president Richard May. "It was just a mud puddle." And silting from the outflow finished off the fish in the first couple of miles below the dam that once was a prime fishery.

A fisherman comes into Sierra Sporting Goods all excited about the golden trout he has been catching in the Kern River. Proprietors Jack Dempsey and John Spoon exchange a look that says, "Do you want to tell him or shall I?" Finally, one says, "Uh, sir, there's something we should tell you. . . . " There are no golden trout--the state fish--in the roadside sections of the Kern 20 miles above Kernville.

A proposal to remove Matilija Dam to save the endangered southern steelhead trout has gained favor with environmentalists, but a growing number of critics say it would be costly, complicated and potentially dangerous for the few remaining steelhead left in Southern California. A variety of scientists, government officials and two recent studies contend that there are cheaper and simpler ways of restoring the steelhead's habitat than spending millions to dismantle a 145-foot-tall dam.
