November meeting plans include a presentation by ODFW Biologist Reed Fischer

Salem Chapter President Jay Wylie reports that we are scheduled to hear a presentation from Reed Fischer of the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife. In the interest of providing ongoing Steelhead fishing information to our members, we also plan to present a lesson from the ODFW’s “Steelhead 101 Class” at the November and future monthly membership meetings. If you would like to help present one of the future lesson plans, please let President Jay know of your interest in doing so. Secretary Mike Ferris has a list available of individual lesson topics.

On October 23rd, John and Travis Woerner tried their luck fishing for Coho Salmon on the North Santiam River with Salem Chapter Secretary Mike Ferris. With good river conditions and fair weather, they were able to find a couple of hefty, bright fish on the drift between Stayton and Shelburn. Travis landed his first salmon that day and a good time was had by all.
