Eugene and Corvallis Trout Unlimited Chapters are gaining steam and need your support in their conservation efforts. The Eugene Redsides Chapter and the Corvallis Bluebacks are having meetings and events outlined below.

October meeting

Monday, October 13th, Rogue Ales Public House (lower level), 844 Olive St, Eugene —

The Redsides October meeting will be held in the lower level of the Rogue Ales Public House on October 13th. The board meeting is at 6:00PM and all members are welcome to attend. The general meeting starts at 7:00PM and is open to the general public.

This month’s presentation will be given by Jared Weybright, Project Coordinator McKenzie Watershed Council. Jared will give an overview of the watershed and discuss specific projects, rehabilitation and improvements throughout the watershed.

There is usually street parking available, but there is also a parking garage in the 900 block of Charnelton that is free after 6:00PM. It’s an easy 2-block walk to Rogue.


The Corvallis-based Blueback Chapter of Trout Unlimited is at it again, hosting the International Fly Fishing Film Festival at the Whiteside Theatre on Saturday, October 11th. Doors open at 7pm (but get there early, as the line at F3T was pretty massive by the time the doors swung open), movie starts at 8pm. This year, adult beverages will be served upstairs at the Whiteside, with the lower level reserved for families. Upstairs, the Bluebacks will be joined by Ninkasi Brewing Company, Nectar Creek Honeymead, 4 Spirits Distillery, Vivacity Spirits, and other local beverage makers to ensure everyone has a great time at the film.

Tickets are $10 advanced, available online by clicking here, or $15 at the door. All proceeds from the event will benefit coldwater fisheries conservation in Oregon. To learn more about the Bluebacks, their chapter meetings, and upcoming events, see www.bluebacks.org.
