Second Annual Mckenzie River Clean-Up

Rebar.  Beer cans and bait canisters.  Electrical conduit.  Tires.  More tires.  Do these belong in the pristine waters of the Mckenzie River?  No!   Join Trout Unlimited’s members and friends as we clean-up the river from Hendricks Bridge to Bellinger Landing, Saturday September 14th. 


Boats will launch from Hendricks Bridge at 3:00 pm.  Don’t doubt the difference that a driftboat and a volunteer can make.  Last year we pulled twenty two tires out of the river! Let’s try and top last years tally.  Be sure to bring a rod.  October caddis could hatch and it would be a shame to be on the water without it.  What better excuse could there be to sneak in some fall fishing?   Prior to the float Trout Unlimited is hosting a free bbq from noon to three for our members as well as the public.  Trout Unlimited wishes to extend a special invitation to anyone who has participated in the Mckenzie River trout study this past season.  Come out and give a little back to the river.  To secure your seat contact Karl Mueller at (541) 915-2411.  Hope to see you there!

    I’ll never be mistaken for a “treehugger” or anything like it, but I do have a great appreciation for the natural beauty God almighty has given us to enjoy. Nothing makes me more disgusted than seeing people’s trash in or along the river.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone that works so hard to keep our wonderfull gift clean and safe for all of us and the fish we love to catch!

    God bless.
