Sandra Jacobson, Ph.D.

Director, South Coast Region California Trout

Sandra Jacobson, who manages the South Coast Steelhead Coalition, will talk about recovery actions underway for endangered Southern steelhead in regional rivers. These trout migrate seasonally between freshwater and the ocean and are sensitive to changes in rivers that block their migration and disrupt their spawning and rearing habitats. CalTrout leads two steelhead coalitions in Southern California -- one based in San Diego, the other in Ventura – which are actively engaged in implementing the federal recovery plan.

Our Mission

  • To promote, improve and enjoy all phases of fly fishing.
  • To maintain a high standard of true sportsmanship and promote social relations among its' members.
  • We, individually, endeavor to take at least one youth (beginner/no age restriction) fly fishing annually; instruct them, to the best of our ability, in the art and responsibilities that are soon to be wholly theirs.
  • To fraternize and cooperate with organizations whose aims and purposes preserve our waters and to promote the sport.
  • To provide instruction and information in fly casting, flytying, rod building and entomology. These classes and/or clinics will be open to the public with no fee
