For the Fish, The Fishermen, and The Future

Welcome to 2017! It's that time of year again when our salmon friends benefit from those once regal Christmas Trees. Bring your tree by and stop in our favorite local fly shops for a visit.

More information available from the
TVTU Facebook Page

Trees will benefit salmon, steelhead and other aquatic critters in our local rivers by providing refuge, habitat, and food sources. TVTU works with ODFW on the Clackamas river and we provide some overflow to benefit smaller, urban creeks as well. For information on projects around Seaside, Oregon contact the Wild North Coast Chapter.

Thank you for your support and remember this benefits everyone -
the Fish, the Fisherman, and the Future!

Merry Christmas from ODFW....

Celebrate the New Year with free fishing and crabbing
Dec. 23, 2016

SALEM – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife wants to make it easy for anglers to kick off the fishing new year with a free fishing weekend on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.
On Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, fishing, crabbing and clamming in Oregon will be free. That means no licenses, tags or endorsements are needed on those days. (Though all other fishing regulations apply.)

While many might not think of fishing in December and January, Oregon offers some great opportunities during the winter months:
  • Recreational crabbing is now open along the entire Oregon Coast.
  • The winter steelhead season is heating up.
  • Some lower elevation lakes and ponds were stocked with trout as late as this month.
“Spending a day outside with the family, enjoying Oregon’s natural beauty, is a great way to spend a day together no matter what time of year,” said Richard Hargrave, ODFW spokesperson.

There are some special considerations when heading outdoors during the winter months, Hargrave added. “Check water conditions and the weather forecast before heading out; dress for the conditions, and be leery of high water levels and surf.”
