In what could be the largest dam removal project ever completed in California, government officials and a Monterey water company on Monday agreed to tear down the 106-foot-tall San Clemente Dam. The move is a victory for endangered steelhead trout which for decades have been blocked from their spawning grounds by the obsolete concrete structure on the Carmel River.

Question. Don't trout try to spawn where they were born? So if the dam's been there for decades, aren't the trout really, really old? Just a question.
