Deschutes R. Passage (Chinook for the Metolius R.)

Metolius R. Chinook...the beginning

Metolius R. Chinook...the beginning

 

‘150,000 Chinook salmon fry released into the Metolius’

This project is an extraordinary collaboration. There were about 40 of us working on this release last Monday and Tuesday—from the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and PGE. We also had a few volunteers from the U.S. Forest Service, Oregon Department of Transportation, and the Deschutes Basin Land Trust. Even though we were knee-deep in ice cold water, we’re all pretty excited about seeing fish in the river again.

A successful release
We distributed 14 bags each morning and 10 bags each afternoon during those two days. It was pretty cold work, but we are all really enthusiastic about getting fish back into the Metolius.

Women and Fly Fishing (Motivation via Imagery & Support)

Women are no different in wanting how to info, visual stimulation and the comfort of supportive, non-judgemental information. These two sites are among many that address women and fly fishing. These two provide all the above factors to keep a woman moving forward into fly fishing and fly tying. I have highligted both before and believe the visuals are as important as the written in todays fly fishing world. Imagery, Eye Candy, Fish Porn all address what we need to stay motivated.

Big Water, Light Touch
Fishing the upper Kenai for rainbows is a different game from the high-octane king fishery in the lower river: light tackle and flies rather than heavy hardware, drift boats rather than power craft. Operating a 20-foot McKenzie in heavy current with four anglers aboard may sound like a job for an Olympic rowing champion, but Byrd-Coulliette refuses to consider her trim 5-foot-3inch frame a disadvantage at the oars.

Hans Weilenmann (Great Imagery and Fly Patterns)

I recommend Hans’ collection of flies that are quite suitable anywhere, but the NW is my focus. Unfortunately, I cannot download his pics as a teaser, as Hans seems to be concerned with PicPiracy or FlyForaging (understood). Take a look at his pics and enjoy. They will certainly provide inspiration and his photography is good as well.
