- Let's make spinners and drink beer.
Getting ready for fishing the deschutes hard and the fall chinook, coho and steelhead runs require me to stock up and spit out some custom home made spinners. Get ready for throwing a lot of metal. And customizing spinners for certain rivers. So just at the house, going to make a bunch, and want company. Less formal this year. But limited on size. 10 would be max. Comfortably. If we have more interest we can do another class next weekend. Girlfriend is out of town for two weeks. Haha. I will provide most supplies that are needed. Or being your own. You pay only for what you build and take. Will be anywhere from 1 to 3 dollars max per spinner. No cost to just come and learn how to make a spinner. Or drink beer. You dont have to drink. But if you do just bring what you want to drink. Man. You think I'm providing free drinks? Haha. Your crazy man. But in may have a few extra around. And some snacks. Ok. Enough rambling. Come if you want. We could even get some pizza. I may heat up a frozen one or something fancy like that. Cool. See you there.
- Columbia River Chapter ANWS - Hatchery and Wild Campaign
Join us for our monthly chapter meeting! Our meetings are free and open to the public. Our guest speaker this month is Dave Schamp from the Hatchery and Wild Coexist Campaign. Hatchery & Wild is a campaign to highlight the importance of fish hatcheries. For decades they have provided important mitigation for the loss of naturally spawned salmon and steelhead. And, absent hatchery supplementation there is a good chance that a lot of very popular fisheries would have ended a long time ago. Hatcheries have been viewed by some as a major contributor to the decline of wild salmon and steelhead populations. That premise has led to significant reductions, and in several cases complete elimination, of hatchery supplementation in hopes of reviving wild fish numbers. Recent studies show that removing hatchery fish does not, by itself, result in an increase in wild fish. There is no known instance in Oregon or Washington, where the reduction or elimination of hatchery supplementation from watersheds with a historical wild fish population, resulted in an increase in wild fish abundance absent other contributing factors. It is time to change the anti-hatchery narrative. History — and now sound science — shows hatcheries do not have an adverse impact on wild fish abundance and they are critical to enjoying robust and healthy fisheries. Grab a friend and come join us to learn more about this great campaign! We will be raffling off lots of gear and a Lamiglas rod.

- Columbia River Chapter NW Steelheaders June Meeting
Our guest speaker this month will be Ed Wickersham who is the Committee Chair of the Columbia River Endorsement Committee. This topic is very controversial and will be great to finally get some answers straight from the source. As we all know, the CRE was introduced back in 2009 and outline specific plans and goals. The main vision was: “The department shall create and administer a Columbia riverrecreational salmon and steelhead pilot stamp program. The program must facilitate continued and, to the maximum extent possible, improved recreational salmon and steelhead selective fishing opportunities on the Columbia river and its tributaries by supplementing the resources available to the department to carry out the scientific monitoring and evaluation, data collection, permitting, reporting, enforcement, and other activities necessary to provide such opportunities.” Whether that actually happened or not is debatable. But Ed will be at next weeks meeting to share his side of the story and answer any questions you might have! The full CRE Senate Bill can be found below for reference. As always our meetings are FREE and open to the public. Grab a friend and join us for a great evening. We will be having our usual membership raffle, gear raffle, and also Lamiglas rod raffle.
