It's April.  Things are waking up, water temps are warming and the number of fishing opportunities increase by each passing day.   Winter steelhead, spring chinook, spring trout and various warmwater species are all becoming active now.

Not sure what to pursue or where your best chances of having a successful trip will be?  Rob Crandall will give us a great rundown of all the possibilities in the spring fishing arena.  You won't want to miss this pitch.

Whether on the Deschutes, Clackamas, or Oregon’s North Coast streams Rob’s ongoing love of fly fishing is evident. Rob has been a licensed Oregon fishing guide since 1992 -he grew up on the banks of the Clackamas River chasing anything with fins but especially steelhead. You may have seen him on a number of different tv shows with Flyfish TV, Frontier Unlimited or Columbia Country TV. Rob is the past editor of Flyfishing & Tying Journal magazine, has been a contract fly tier for Spirit River Flies and Aqua Flies and has just released a DVD with Flyfish TV called Winter Spey Strategies.  Guiding, teaching or tying flies Rob loves to share his knowledge with others passionate about the sport.

Projects and Volunteer Opportunities

Eagle Creek Steelhead Surveys Underway.  

CRTU Survey teams have counted 11 redds so far this season on our stretch of Eagle Creek.  This matches our total from last year and teams have had better survey conditions with a lower water year and favorable weather.  

Surveys are conducted in teams of 2 and happen one day a week.  The survey takes about 2 hours for each session.  Contact  Dave Tenney if you are interested or just want to tag along and see what's going on

Council meetings are an opportunity to provide face to face interactions with Council Staff, Chapter Leaders and National Staff.  The council board is made up of chapter representatives, along with the elected staff members and are an important part of the grass roots organization for TU in Oregon.

Oregon Council Advocacy Committee

One of the key functions of the Oregon Council is to promote sensible science based fish and fish habitat policies in Oregon.  

The Oregon Council hosts an Advocacy committee that watches legislative progress and key agency meetings that impact fish and fish habitat.  

The committee is made up of volunteer members from several chapters, along with TU Staff Representation.  

The Oregon Council strongly urges each member to contact their local legislator to promote sensible fish and habitat policies.  Local constituencies are critical in supporting good fish and habitat management.

As anglers and conservationists, we have seen a renewed appetite for exploiting public lands for energy development and extraction. Please take the opportunity to let your senators and congressional representatives know how you feel about keeping public lands in public hands!
