So what if the Matilija dam is removed? what would be the result and the plan afterward?

A unrestricted river that will delever spawning habitat for the sourthen steelhead unlike any river in SoCal. The beaches in the Ventura and Oxnard area will fill with the sand that they have not had since the dam went up.  For sure no fishing for the rest of the century.  The steelhead survive the improper use of this watershed by the humans who finally figured out that they need to use their brains to make and not take.            LEW
