The Memory of Fish

The Memory of Fish is a documentary portrait of the intertwined lives of Dick Goin and wild fish, and his fight to free a river. The Elwha River’s salmon fed Dick and his family after they migrated to the Olympic Peninsula during the Dust Bowl, and Dick never forgot his debt to the now disappearing fish. We follow Dick, a pulp mill worker and master fisherman, as he uses his memories and persistence to battle for the biggest dam removal project in US history so that the salmon can come home.
