Could use a few more hands....

As of 12.14.17 we could us a few more hands - why not help out? "Shifts' are usually about 4-hours though if you want to hang for the entire collection day you are certainly welcome to. Side benefit is that both our collection spots are next to our favorite fly shops - you can step inside and visit during the day! No sales pitches or anything else that really needs to happen - receive and stack trees, take and record some basic information and the collection fee. Plus, you get to gather and gab with fellow TU''s not all that difficult but the rewards are many! Please sign up with MIKE GENTRY today.

WHEN: Saturday, January 6 & 13, 2018
WHAT: CHRISTMAS for COHO Tree Collection
WHAT TIME: 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
This is our yearly conservation project - the one that starts it all for us here at TVTU! Two weekends in the new year gather with a few of your fellow TVTU Chapter members to collect gently used Christmas trees from the public. We have two collection sites in the metro area where we gather trees and stage them for removal to project sites.
Low key effort - basically meet and greet the public, take their trees, collect the fee, and place the tree on the pile to go to the Clackamas River. Each location is adjacent to our favorite fly shops in town so you can venture into the shop to warm up and browse.
We can use your help! Sign up for one of the shifts today!

November Edition "The Trout Line"

Jerry, in his last flash as editor, has published his last edition of the The Trout Line. For years, he has tirelessly assembled the newsletter and improved its' content, appearance and layout. Jerry has decided he wants to focus more on his Veterans programs and will be leaving the newsletter staff [his staff of one....] to play a larger role in coordinating those efforts both locally and nationally - we don't find fault in his priorities! So to Jerry - we lift an Arnold-Palmer and salute his years of dedicated effort and THANK him graciously!!

Please thank Jerry the next time you see him at an event!

The post-Marmot Sandy River...

ODFW fish biologists (left to right) Rob Dietrich, Todd Alsbury, and Danette Faucera, run a sein net through the Sandy River to collect spring Chinook for two years after Marmot Dam was removed, and a fish trap at the facility was also destroyed. Later on, ODFW used portable weirs to do this job as fish management evolved. (ODFW file photo

Ten years after Oregon’s largest dam removal, salmon and steelhead rebounding on the Sandy 
Thursday, October 19, 2017

CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Ten years ago a new era of salmon and steelhead recovery quite literally started out with a bang when Marmot Dam was removed from the Sandy River.
More than a ton of high-grade explosives were detonated, taking off the face of the 47-foot high concrete dam.

At the time, it was the largest dam breach ever attempted. Portland General Electric, owner of the dam, figured it would be more cost-effective to remove the structure than upgrade it to meet new federal re-licensing standards.

In July 2007, in a highly publicized event, PGE blew the concrete face off its dam on the Sandy River. For the next three months, large backhoes with pneumatic hammers pulverized, drilled, pulled apart and hauled off the remaining pieces of the dam. On Oct. 19, a rainstorm swept away the backfill that had accumulated behind the dam, making the Sandy totally free-flowing again,...

Speaking of Diamond Lake....

If you've been in Oregon for very long you are ware of the various efforts to eliminate Tui Chubs and shiners [released from 'trophy' bait fisherman's bait wells/buckets] including the last rotenone poisoning. Similar to other battles with mother nature this one continues to thrive - and here is the latest effort to thwart the invasives....

Tui chub (bottom) and a golden shiner (top).  Both fish are present in Diamond Lake, but ODFW says the shiners don't proliferate and affect water quality nearly as intensely as the chub.

Dam removal should boost fish passage
Published July 23, 2017

PENDLETON — Work has started to remove a dam in Eastern Oregon that blocks salmon, steelhead and lamprey. 

The effort to remove the Dillon Diversion Dam on the Umatilla River outside of Echo started earlier this month. The dam is 200 feet long. 

Bill Duke, district fish biologist for the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, said fish ladders on either side of dam don’t always work properly, and the dam was considered a significant problem for native salmon and steelhead. 

“Fall chinook and coho, they tend to come up to that obstruction and get delayed there,” Duke said. “They end up spawning there below the dam.” 

He said the spot is not conducive for rearing juvenile salmon and steelhead. 

The dam built in 1915 served five landowners as part of the Dillon Irrigation Co. with water rights dating to the 1890s.

But the landowners the rest of the ARTICLE.

ODFW seeks Sport Fishing Representative for Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program Board
Tuesday, July 18, 2017

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking qualified applicants to fill a soon to be vacant sport fishing position on the Fish Restoration and Enhancement (R and E) Program Board. Interested individuals must apply by July 31, 2017 using <<THIS APPLICATION>>. The appointment will be effective on Jan. 1, 2018.

The ideal Sport Fishing Representative candidate will be a resident of Oregon that is able to effectively represent the sport anglers of Oregon. Desirable attributes include involvement with local fishing groups or fish management, previous experience with boards or commissions, and knowledge of, or involvement with, the diverse sport fisheries across Oregon.

The Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program was created by the Oregon Legislature in 1989 to help fund fish restoration and enhancement projects throughout the state. The program is funded by a surcharge on sport and commercial fishing licenses and commercial poundage fees and is overseen by a seven-member citizen board made up of three sport fishing representatives, three representatives from the troll, gillnet and seafood processing industries and one public-at-large representative. The Board reviews grant proposals from various organizations and agencies and recommends projects for funding.

Board members, who are appointed to four-year terms by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, meet three or four times each year in various communities throughout the state to review project funding applications, hear public testimony, act as liaisons between the program and the public and to conduct other program business. Board members are volunteers; however, Board-related business expenses are reimbursed.

For more information and to obtain an application, go to the R and E Program website at or contact Kevin Herkamp at (503) 947-6232 or

ODFW: anglers give region’s steelhead a helping hand
July 13, 2017

CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Facing some of the lowest steelhead returns on record, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has already curtailed steelhead fishing seasons throughout the Columbia River basin by adopting rolling season closures, reduced bag limits, and a night angling closure for all species.

Additionally, ODFW is asking anglers to further help the region’s steelhead by adopting ODFW’s best handling practices when they’re out on the water this summer.

“Positive voluntary efforts may reduce the necessity for future mandatory regulations,” said Tucker Jones, ODFW’s manager of Ocean Salmon and Columbia River fisheries. “If a person happens to intercept a wild steelhead, or any steelhead during a retention closure period for that matter, it is imperative that they do their utmost to ensure its survival by using best handling practices.”

ODFW lists best handling practices on Page 13 of the 2017 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations. These practices include:
  • Use barbless hooks (even where not required)
  • Use tackle strong enough to bring your fish in quickly
  • Land fish as quickly and carefully as possible
  • Avoid removing the fish from the water
  • If taking a photo, cradle the fish at water level and quickly take the picture
  • Remove hooks quickly and gently while keeping the fish under water
  • Use long-nosed pliers or hemostats to back out a hook
  • If a fish is hooked deeply, cut the line near the hook
  • Revive fish (point them into slow current or move them back and forth until gills are working)
  • When possible, let the fish swim out of your hands
  • Fish when it’s cool out – likely early in the morning or late in the afternoon – fishing is better and stress on fish is less.
Upriver summer steelhead forecasts are very low this year at approximately 119,000, compared to 5- and 10-year average actual returns of 236,000 and 315,000, respectively. Wild upriver summer steelhead forecasts are low as well, with a forecast return of just 34,000 fish versus the 5- and 10-year average actual returns of 87,000 and 105,000, respectively. Snake River wild “B” steelhead returns are the most imperiled, with a forecast of just 1,100 fish.

With returns of steelhead so low, another strategy is to not target them and focus on other species, including warmwater species such as bass, walleye, and pikeminnow. These species are not only fun to catch but they also prey on juvenile steelhead and salmon.

A report....

Laurance Lake - early June:

I suppose if we received more reports from members we might publish them more for other members – as the case is, we don’t receive that many and I don’t seem to make the time to fish all that often these days to make reports. Who does right? I do however, have a group of people whom I consider fishing friends who invited me along on an annual trip of theirs. Mostly coworkers and work acquaintances, this crew has been fishing annually for 21 years – I was first invited in 2012. The premise, started by a now retired structural engineer, was to take a day in the middle of the week and leave work behind – as he states “it’s a reason to play ‘hooky’ for a day”.

For as many years as I have been involved, this so-called “Shut Up and Fish” gathering has been going to Laurance Lake...

What'd I Miss - June Edition

The Chapter welcomed well over 30 people to the Lucky Lab Public House-Multnomah this past month in anticipation of hearing Jeff Morgan regale all with information on Fishing the Hidden Cascades of Oregon. Erle started off the meeting with new member and visitor introductions – a nice showing of folks self-introducing including Jackie [a recent Vermont transplant], Andrew and Preston [first time attendees], John [recent transfer from NY] and Phil Hafele a long-time participant and visitor. Thanks to all and we hope you had a good time! 

Fish Reports: Andy was not at this meeting but a few folks who made the Timothy Lake outing shared their reports – Tom Wolf noted that many fish were caught; John corroborates the story noting several 17” through 20” fish were brought

Help a native fish [and ODFW] out - comment today

Fish screening waiver requested on White River – Comment until July 11
Tuesday, June 27, 2017

SALEM, Ore.—The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking public comment on a request to forego fish screening at a new point of diversion on White River, a tributary of the Deschutes River in Wasco County. Comments are due by July 11, 2017.

The water user on White River applied for a point of diversion transfer to their water right through the Oregon Water Resources Department (OWRD application #T-10555) in 2008. This transfer requested approval to relocate the point of diversion downstream where water would be diverted through the use of a pump.

OWRD approved the Transfer Application in 2009 with a requirement that the applicant install and operate a fish screen at the diversion. OWRD specified, “Prior to diverting water, the water user shall install a fish screening and/or bypass device, as appropriate, at the new point of diversion consistent with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (ODFW) design and construction standards.”

The applicant has applied to ODFW’s Fish Screening Task Force to be excused from compliance....

Fish Passage Exemption....comment

ODFW seeks comment on fish passage exemption
Thursday, June 22, 2017

SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) is seeking public comment on a request to exempt from fish passage requirements a proposed culvert at an unnamed tributary to Young’s Bay, which is connected to the Columbia River in Clatsop County. Comments are due by July 14, 2017.

Jim Morinville, the Operations Manager with Warrenton Kia Automotive Dealership, plans to extend a parking area and install a new culvert in an drainage ditch which carries water to an unnamed tributary to Young’s Bay, a tributary to the Columbia River. This action has triggered Oregon’s fish passage laws. 

According to Greg Apke, ODFW Fish Passage Program coordinator, ODFW may grant fish passage exemptions if there are no benefits to native migratory fish from providing passage. Because of the site specific habitat conditions and other complete artificial obstructions below the project location, ODFW has made an initial determination that even if fish passage was provided, the action would still result in no net benefit to native migratory fish. If in the future, conditions change from which the decision was made, exemptions can be revoked and fish passage shall be addressed. 

Therefore, unless public comment is provided that would affect the Department's determination, the exemption request will be approved.

In the meantime, members of the public will have until July 14, 2017 to submit written comments on the proposed plan. The fish passage exemption application and the Department’s benefit analyses are available at .

Members of the public can send written comments to request additional information from Greg Apke, ODFW Fish Passage Program leader, 4034 Fairview Industrial Dr SE, Salem, OR 97303, e-mail,, or by calling (503) 947-6228
