Our local Trout Unlimited Chapter will hold it’s first meeting for 2019 on January 14th at Claim 52 Kitchen on Willamette Street – 6-8pm.
Smith River Updates
We are excited to kick off 2019 with Stephanie Messerle, District Fish Biologist from the BLM, and Brian Jenkins, Executive Director for the Smith River Watershed Council. Due to complications, they weren’t able to make our December meeting, but they’ve both agreed to come back and present information on the Smith River Watershed.
The presentation will include a general overview and characterization of the Smith River Watershed including land ownership, land use history, fisheries, and past restoration work. Whole Watershed Restoration projects in the West Fork Smith River Watershed will be highlighted as well as long-term data from the Life Cycle Monitoring Project. The presenters wish to solicit feedback from TU members regarding improving and increasing fishing access in the Smith River and future volunteer opportunities.
