August at TVTU?

Check out the CALENDAR OF UPCOMING EVENTS on the website!

WHY? We give everyone the month off - enjoy an outing with the family before the frenetic pace of school, sports, music, work and everything else ramps up again this next month! We know we will be!
WHAT'S NEXT? September 10 the general meetings resume at the Lucky Lab in Multnomah Village. We'll have David Moskowitz with the Deschutes River Alliance as speaker. Please join us then.

WHEN: August 15th - 18th, 2014
WHERE: Miller Lake - Eastern Oregon
WHAT TIME: late afternoon - Digit Point Campground [west of Chemult].
WHAT to EXPECT: Miller Lake is about 600 acres of rainbow, brown and kokanee inhabited water - and a few mosquitoes!
The lake is one of only two available for night-time fishing in Oregon. Mouse for big browns anyone? Like many of the eastern Oregon lakes along the divide, Miller can get windy - but there are still some fishable, protected areas near the campground.
WHAT to BRING: TVTU camp is often found near the day-use area end of the campground - away from the boat launch. There is ample shore for moorage near this area; just drive the loops to the left first and look for the TVTU flag. Those attending are asked to bring something to share with the group during the barbecue (dessert, salad, chips and dip, bottle of wine) - that'll happen Saturday night. You'll want a small boat, pontoon or float tube to access the lakes more productive regions. Bug spray is usually desirable. Also it's a campout so drag down your tent/truck cab and other necessary living & cooking gear.
CONTACT: get in touch with Andy Andrews - RSVP if you can!
