Trout Unlimited, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and The Caddis Fly would like to invite you to participate in the 3rd Annual McKenzie River Native Trout Population Study. This study is to help determine the Native Redside population in the section of the McKenzie River from Hendricks Park to Bellinger Boat Landing. The data collected over the last 2 years has been critical in determining the population size.
To participate in the study, you need to attend the training session being held Tuesday, May 8th at the Springfield ODFW office. There will be 2 training sessions and you only need to attend one.
Besides reviewing the protocol and data collection, we will bring you up to date on our plans for a fall study session and for adding radio telemetry to our arsenal of powerful tools.
