A film documenting the recently completed Miners Gulch project on the Vermilion River was just completed! Thanks to Josh Boyd for producing this film and to all of the partners who were interviewed and appear within it. Many other people and and organizations were essential to making this collaborative project happen.
It premiered at the Fly Fishing Film Tour in Thompson Falls on April 28. Also shown at that event was Roots: Bringing Back the Bull River, a film about ongoing revegetation efforts along the Bull River that the Green Mountain Conservation District also supports.

The Vermilion River represents the single largest Bull Trout spawning stream in more than 100 miles of the mainstem Lower Clark Fork River drainage and is also a stronghold for westslope cutthroat trout. Historically, the river has been impaired by upstream clear-cutting and significant mining activity, which has decreased the stability of this drainage.
