It appears the water shortage in CA has our servers on the fritz....or at least the ISP people! You probably have noticed WE'VE BEEN DOWN!!! Hopefully the website issue will be resolved soon - in the meantime, with a little help from google we may have come up with an alternative......

So if you're not fishing at South Twin [and it's not too late if you leave now] on!

Latest issue as noted will be delayed......jeers to the server farm! What you can look forward to is the NEW TECHNOLOGY [at least for us] which has it posted to The Cloud and with any luck on Sunday around 7:00 a.m. - in time for your morning coffee - it will pop up here on the blog.....alternatively: click that little link on the right hand column, under the Facebook Button, that reads DOWNLOAD. Or click this >>> The Trout Line - ENJOY! Thank you so much for your patience!!

WHEN: Wednesday, May 13, 2015
WHERE: Lucky Lab Public House [Multnomah]
WHAT TIME: 6:30 p.m. Socializing; meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.
WHAT to EXPECT: Melissa Brown - "Urban Fish: Making a Living in the City"
The Portland metro area is home to dozens of resident and migratory fish species. For these fish, it’s survival of the fittest, as their habitat exists as a shell of its former self due to cumulative impacts of population growth, habitat loss,  pollution, passage barriers, fishing pressure, invasive predation, and competition with hatchery fish. Yet, we see populations persist!
Melissa will take you to some of the pockets of salvation where we still find remnants of what once was, and discuss what the City is doing to keep salmonids around for the long run.
WHAT to BRING: an appetite and a friend! Food and beverages are available for purchase - second floor banquet room.
