May 2015 Newsletter

Hi All!

And a very good morning to fall of you. I am looking out my window and seeing blue sky, sunshine and birds all over the yard. The river looks great at this time, the water level is low but the fish are still moving, I just heard of 3 Chinook caught so far this week and some steelhead, so it looks like some of them are getting past the sea lions at Willamette Falls, all reports indicate that about 3000 fish have been stopped by 30 some sea lions, anyone have a good recipe for sea lion?

Let me take some time to thank all the volunteers that showed up at the Park for the clean-up, who knew there wouldn’t be anything to do, the parks people have been hitting it hard and the park looks fabulous. So we had a great lunch and went home.

Another shout out to the volunteers that helped with the fly fishing clinic, what a great clinic there were some very talented people there. A special thanks to member and Pro Guide Dave Carpenter for his assistance and instruction you are greatly appreciated, and we are looking forward to you speaking at our general meeting in June.

As for this month our speaker is Wayne Parker from Good Day Fishing.  Wayne will be showing us some new products that are in his store and giving us some good advise on fishing, so come one come all to the greatest show of all. We are hoping to see you all there.

Minto Park clean-up is on the 23rd of this month so please sign up to help.

Free Fishing Days are the weekend of June the6th and 7th we will be helping to clean fish and help the kids catch fish at the Roaring River hatchery, and we need volunteers for that it really is a lot of fun seeing these kids catch fish that are almost as big as they are, some want to take them home for pets.

Youth Outdoor Day is on the 30th of this month, there is still time to volunteer if you want to help, it is fun and they serve us lunch.

Well enough for now I hope to see you all at the meeting Tuesday the 19th at 7:00 pm.  And remember we have some great door prizes and refreshments, so bring a friend and enjoy the evening with our guest speaker and all our fishing buddies. So for now keep you r line tight and your powder dry.
