The Yurok Tribe of California filed suit in federal court on Tuesday to increase water for dying fish.

The tribe is joined in the suit by conservationists and fishermen. All have denounced Secretary of Interior Gale Norton's water policies in the Klamath Basin. They say her denial of water contributed to the deaths of as many as 20,000 salmon.
