October at TVTU?

Well, here it is - the 'annual' What's What and Who's What of the TVTU blog....and the good word this month is all of the LINKS and "click here's" will work! The TVTU WEBSITE is up and running again. That being said - here is what TVTU has on tap for October:

NEWSLETTER [recycled info]!
In case you missed it last month due to our technical difficulties we'll rehash this one:
The TVTU Website has the September / October issue of The Trout Line for your reading pleasure!

WHEN: Wednesday, October 10, 2014
WHERE: Lucky Lab Public House [Multnomah] [Note the scenery change!!]
WHAT TIME: 6:30 p.m. Socializing; meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.

WHAT to EXPECT: Brian Marz, Flyfishing for Pacific Salmon
Brian Marz has an extensive fishing and guiding background and will speak about fly fishing techniques for Chinook, Coho, and Chum salmon on Oregon Rivers. Brian is a fishing guide as well as the fishing manager for Orvis' Portland Store at Bridgeport Village in Tigard.
WHAT to BRING: a friend, a story, an appetite - meetings are rather informal, so put out your hand and offer a smile! Food and beverages are available for purchase - second floor banquet room.

UPDATE [10.15.14]: Andy just mentioned he's down and out with a lingering illness and therefore will not be on the Deschutes this weekend; we have no official replacement lined up so it looks like anyone attending will be on their own. Take the opportunity to poke around and see who else may be there from TVTU! [oh and pack your own barbecued bacon wrapped shrimp and quiche...cuz the Rod Kill Grille will not be there]. Let us know how it goes!

OUTING - last of 2014!
WHEN: October 17-20, 2014
WHERE: Deschutes River [Harpham Flats Campground]

WHAT TIME: late afternoon - Friday
WHAT to EXPECT: October
Deschutes means fishing for trout or steelhead - be prepared! Saturday night there will be a barbecue with TU supplying the meat. Those attending are encouraged to help by providing a salad, dessert or some other food item for the group. Cookout cancelled - "cookey" and the grille will not be there - ON YER OWN!
WHAT to BRING: it's a Campouting - bring your camp gear; some grub, your trout and/or steelhead gear; waders and all that other gear you've accumulated over the years that seems to fill all the crevices of your vehicle! Oh and it gets cold this time of year - so warm clothes and sleeping bag - some firewood would be awesome to add to the group fires!
DIRECTIONS: Head over Mt. Hood on highway 26 to the intersection of highway 216. Take 216 past Pine Grove to the intersection of highway 197. Turn right and go through the town of Maupin, cross over the Deschutes River and turn right, and in 0.2 miles take the right fork to River Road. Drive about 5 miles to the Harpham Flats Campground on your right
