Bristol Bay Action Requested

TVTU Board of Directors approves letter to Oregon Senators urging action... 

TVTU has joined other Oregon Chapters of Trout Unlimited in signing a letter to Oregon Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden encouraging them to take action in the protection of the Bristol Bay fishery. The TVTU Board of Directors approved taking action and signing the letter which urges the Oregon Senators to contact the EPA and President Obama regarding a recent EPA announcement that it will further delay the Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment by expanding the already lengthy study to further the scientific review.

A copy of the letter is available HERE for review. If you feel strongly and care to contact the Senators regarding the activities affecting Bristol Bay, please do so [use the letter as a template if you choose].

Thank you!
