More about the film:

CalTrout and Keith Brauneis Productions’ campaign to fund Liquid Gold, a film about the plight of California’s Golden Trout, is a third of the way funded. The short film will raise awareness of this magnificent fish, its habitat and its plight and will be submitted to the Fly Fishing Film Tour, Wild & Scenic Film Tour and others. Join over fifty other supporters in our crowd-funding campaign to help us achieve our goal of $20,000. The Golden Trout can’t wait. CalTrout has assembled a team of six: 2 backcountry experts (Craig Ballenger and Ted Harbour), 2 master fly fishermen, (Mikey Wier and George Revel), and 2 nationally-aired filmmakers, (Keith Brauneis and Ben Paull). Together this group will embark on a 2-week journey from sea level to 14,000 feet and all points in between, scouring the creeks and alpine lakes of the Eastern Sierra mountain range, seeking out the various descendants and hybrids of the Golden Trout. They will examine current conditions and determine future threats to this species. The story of the California Golden Trout will be the over arching theme that will unfold within a real life adventure story about six men's quest to find Liquid Gold in the great American west. Filmmaker Keith Brauneis’ recent film "Enough is Enough" (produced by CalTrout) was featured in the 2012 Fly Fishing Film Tour.
