  • Pass Creek and North Umpqua River Basin, Oregon (1968)

    Provides a penetrating account of a once-rich steelhead trout stream threatened by careless logging practices. Focusing on Oregon’s North Umpqua River Basin, the film portrays the impact of clearcut logging on the small tributary streams where most of the river’s steelhead are spawned and reared. The subtle interdependence of land and water and the disruption of the aquatic environment caused by stream-clogging debris and warming water are dramatically presented. Hal Riney and Dick Snider, advertising executives and fishermen, produced the film and donated it to Oregon State University. It was widely distributed and viewed in Oregon and throughout the United States through the 1970s and was influential in changing logging practices in the Northwest.
