The SRAC was organized in 1990 to coordinate fishery research and restoration efforts in the basin, secure funding for research and restoration, provide public education forums and materials, and facilitate the development of a Smith River fishery management plan to benefit the biological, social, and economic aspects of the Smith River basin and Del Norte County.

SRAC is an independent group of representatives from city, county, state, and federal agencies; landowners; fishing groups; Smith River watershed resource users; environmental groups; tribes; and industry. SRA has a leadership role, and along with our long-time partner California Trout, has been an active participant in SRAC since its inception.
