By Meghan Walla-Murphy

The Russian River tells a wealthy tale of Sonoma County, either traditionally and ecologically. for so long as should be remembered, there was an intimate courting among the folk of the Russian River and the fish, in particular the salmon and the steelhead. This story of fishing starts with the Pomo people’s communal fishing forays, winds via Russian exploration and early American payment, and lands within the current time.
