City Kids Fishing

How a group of anglers worked to help Portland Youth.
Mike Schmierer of City Kids Fishing will talk about his organization and the work they have done to direct youth energy in a positive direction.

Mike is also an accomplished salt water angler and will share some experiences on the East Coast for a number of salt water species.

Boys and girls in Portland’s inner city and other urban areas need positive experiences. Many of these youths face the disadvantage of growing up with only one or no parent at all.

City Kids Fishing Club provides sportsmanship, ethics, sharing, excitement and camaraderie at local lakes and ponds. Through sponsored and chaperoned fishing trips, we know a positive experience is the best gift we can give.

Future Chapter Meetings:

Oct 10, City Kids Fishing

Nov 14, Morgan Parks, Creating Certified Wildlife Habitat.

Dec 12, Adrian Touhy, Wild Fish Conservancy

Key Happenings on the Fish Conservation Front
Bristol Bay: The Fight is Not Over yet!

Secretary Pruitt has reopened the gate for mining applications in Bristol Bay. TU feels strongly that this is the wrong mine in the wrong place. Public comments on this action are still open until October 17th. Please send in your comments from the TU action center today!

Salvage Logging Bill

HR 3715 has been introduced to fast track salvage logging and additional clear cutting in the gorge scenic area after the Eagle Creek Fire.

While TU is not anti-logging, there is scientific evidence that salvage logging after a fire can do more harm than good. This bill has been introduced to committee in the US Congress and we are watching its progress. TU is opposed to this bill.
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!
