Last Cast Native Trout a Thon!

The Last Cast Native TAT just finished it's inaugural weekend October 27/28.  The goal is to raise awareness for Oregon's native Trout species and raise money for a worthy restoration project.  

Joel LaFollette took individual honors with 70 points and 5 native species, including a wild steelhead.  Our own Team TU took team honors by logging 4 species including a bonus whitefish over 15".  

Watch for notices next year and make your plan to explore Oregon's native Trout on the last weekend in October.
