Check out this new six-minute documentary about the Caprini fish-passage improvement project on the Calaveras River. The video stars landowners Vince and Linda Caprini, river activist Jim Marsh, Stockton East Water District’s Scot Moody and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Donnie Ratcliff, among others.
