This thursday, 5/17/12, the Molalla River Chapter of the Association of the NW Steelheaders will be having our monthly meeting at the Farmstead Restaurant
(located at the Arrowhead Gold Course) in Molalla, OR at 6:30pm. This meeting is open to the public. If you have any interest in the Molalla River, I encourage you to come and help to preserve the great beauty and fishing opportunities that the Molalla River has to offer.

For anyone that has used the Molalla River Corridor over the past 20 years than you know how bad the place used to look. The river has undergone a huge transformation in regards to cleaning up trash, stopping dumping, vandalism, poaching, high school parties and other unneccessary activities. One of the main organizations behind this cleanup is the Molalla River Watch. Kay Patteson of the MRW will be at our meeting this thursday giving a history of her organization as well as an update on some of there current and upcoming projects. This will be a great history lesson for the users of the Molalla River.

We also have an annoucement of a battle won for the sport fisherman of the Molalla. Have to attend to hear the annoucement.

As always we have some great goodies to raffle off so bring a friend and meet some new ones on thursday.

Hope to see you there.

Default 2012 Summer Rendezvous

The 2012 Steelheaders Summer Rendezvous is July 6-8 at Sunnyside Park near Sweet Home.




This event sure was a lot of fun last year, providing opportunities for kokanee fishing on Green Peter Lake, summer steelhead fishing on the S. Santiam River, and trout fishing on the camp ponds. This is not a fundraiser for the Steelheaders. We have set this up to be a fun, inexpensive weekend to enjoy fishing and hanging out around the campfire with fellow Steelheaders.


Flyer and registration form can be found here: http://www.nwsteelheaders.org/ht/a/G...ction/i/117001

Please register ASAP so that we can plan for getting people in boats and meals.

C U @ the Rendevous!

Default Salem Chapter Meeting June 19th

SALEM CHAPTER OF NORTHWEST STEELHEADERS


Featuring


CHAD WILSON


Steelhead Stalkers


JUNE 19th


Chad will be talking about light line float fishing techniques for steelhead. He will have several of his products for display and for sale.


The public is welcome to join us for a fun and educational meeting for everyone.


7:00 PM, June 19th at KeizerCity Hall, 930 Chemawa Rd NE.


http://www.salemnwsteelheaders.org/



Chad started about five years ago as a video resource for anglers. It has now grown into the largest fishing video website on the west coast with over 100 Steelhead, Salmon and Trout related videos including tutorials, knot videos, fishing lessons and entertaining fishing trips. Chad was the first to stream full HD fishing videos and he is now filming all of his new content in full 3D. Chad updates the website daily with new videos, fishing reports and premium tackle.


Steelhead Stalkers started manufacturing UV Yarn three years ago and it is very popular on the west coast. It’s the only yarn made from a blend of extremely soft natural fibers and enhanced with our exclusive 365 nanometer UV process. Chad began using a light line float fishing technique started on the East Coast. Over the last three years Chad has fine tuned this technique to fit the fisheries on the West Coast. Chad uses matched rods and light braid and leader which is an extremely effective technique to catch summer and winter Steelhead

The McLoughlin Chapter of the Association of Northwest Steelheaders has changed location of the memberships monthly meeting starting on September 11th.

The board meetings are still going to be at the Round Table Pizza on McLoughlin.

The Members Meeting has moved to Denny's in Clackamas at 6pm in their banquet room on the second Tuesdays of the month. That Dennys is located close to Highway 212/224 on 82nd Drive in Clackamas.

It is tucked away behind the Chevron gas station on the west side of 82nd Drive and is across from McDonalds (that is on the east side).

Update: Russell Bassett, Executive Director of ANWS will be the speaker.

See you there Tuesday the 11th!!

Make your voice count for Columbia River conservation and sportfishing
Please attend joint ODFW and WDFW commission meeting on Oct. 18. If you can’t attend, please send note to commissions.

Now is the time to take action to protect wild fish and enhance sportfishing opportunity on the Columbia River. In August, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber presented a new direction to the Oregon Department of Fish Wildlife, outlining a major overhaul of Lower Columbia River fisheries. There are many aspects to the Governor’s directive that fit with the Steelheaders policies and strategies since 2003, and align with our goals since the organization’s inception in 1960.
The Governor’s compromise plan includes several key principles that the Steelheaders and our many partners and allies support. They include:
  • The phase out of non-tribal commercial gillnets in the mainstem of the Columbia River. Commercial gillnets moved to select, off channel SAFE zones where harm to non-target species and bi-catch on wild salmon would be greatly reduced.
  • Shift of mainstem harvest impacts to recreational fisheries in order to provide more sportfishing opportunity and economic benefit.
  • Development of more selective fishing gear for mainstem commercial fisheries, which will only be used once recreational objectives are met.
  • Requirements for commercial fishing operations on the Columbia and off-channel areas to report lost nets in a timely fashion and clearly tag and label their nets as a means of enforcing the reporting requirement.
  • Promote fish recovery, including better in-rive migration conditions and reduce mortality caused by Columbia River hydropower systems.
  • Development of alternative approaches to improve pre-season forecasts of run size and timing.
While we are excited about the potential benefits to both conservation and sportfishing in the Governor’s directive and are cautiously optimistic about the agencies’ and commissions’ rule-making efforts to enact that directive, we are also very worried that it could be watered-down into something that we would no longer support. Concerns we have include:

  • The possible continued use of tangle nets in the mainstem, which are effectively a gillnet for steelhead, sockeye and shaker sturgeon. The gillnet lobby will pushing for this with everything they have, and the Governor’s staff has already said this is a possibility the Commission should consider.
  • The ODFW Commission’s past unwillingness and inability to make any substantial positive change in this area.
  • The reduction of tributary smolt plants to feed the SAFE zones.
  • The fiscal impact that could be smothered by the Legislature.
  • A possible watering down to the shifts toward sports during transition and/or a lengthening of the transition time
  • Some members of the environmental community’s desire to ensure the only benefit comes to ESA recovery (which is also a major goal of the Steelheaders) and none to sportfishing.
  • The ODFW advisory group having three voices from the same gillnet lobby and only two voices for all the dozens of conservation and sportfishing groups that support the directive.
That being said, there are some positive signs:
  • Both ODFW are WDFW are working toward the directive.
  • Five ODFW Commissioners were handpicked by the Governor, and the Commission no longer has the uncompromising voices for gillnetting.
  • The majority of agency staff appear to be committed to it.
  • The Oregon League of Conservation Voters and several environmental groups have voiced support for the plan.
  • Although it was rocky few weeks when the Measure 81 Coalition disbanded, all members of the Coalition are now working together to achieve the directive.
  • State Legislators in both states, and both Candidates for WA Governor have voiced support for the directive.
  • Hundreds of businesses are signing-on to a support letter for the plan.
  • Both Commissions are receiving hundreds of support letters for the plan … but there needs to be thousands.
The Steelheaders stepped away from the Measure 81 initiative to support the Governor's compromise. We did not do so lightly, nor without a great deal of pain. We did not do so to have this hard fought compromise watered down. The Commission needs to honor the huge and unprecedented sacrifice made by the members of the Measure 81 Coalition to support his plan. Watering down the Governor's proposal betrays the license-paying public and rewards the commercial fleet that has never made one compromise or said anything but no.

There is no doubt that the gillnet lobby will throw everything they have at this process to keep the status quo, as evidenced by the large turnout by commercials at the previous joint commission meeting. While the Steelheaders and our allies have provided great testimony at commission meetings, there has not been a strong showing of support by the recreational or conservation communities.

It is vital that a strong contingent of anglers and conservations attend the joint commission meeting on Oct. 18. Steelheaders’ leadership, along with our allies, will be there to provide testimony, but we also encourage all members who can make it to show their support for the directive by attending. If you can’t attend, we highly encourage you to send a quick note to the commissions asking them to enact the Governor’s directive in full, and not let it be watered-down by a very small but also powerful lobby that has killed every effort of compromise on this issue in the past.

What: ODFW and WDFW joint Commission workgroup
When: October 18
Where: Embassy Suites, Portland Airport, 7900 NE 82nd Ave.
The agenda for the meeting has not been posted yet, so the start time is not certain at the time of sending this Action Alert, but it will likely be around 8:30 am. To find the exact time for the meeting, click the link below. There is also some good background information available here: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/fish/OSCRP/CRM/LMCR_fisheries_mgmt_reform.asp

SALEM CHAPTER OF NORTHWEST STEELHEADERS
Featuring
Matt Halseth
Professional Guide
November 20, 2012
The public is welcome to join us for a fun and educational meeting for everyone.
7:00 PM, November 20th at Keizer City Hall, 930 Chemawa Rd NE.
http://www.salemnwsteelheaders.org/
Matt Halseth has been fishing for salmon and steelhead for over 20 years and has perfected a handful of techniques that consistently put fish in his boat.
He will be talking about setting up for side drifting, bobber dogging, high and low water situations, and what Matt uses for those conditions and why. Matt will demonstrate tying yarnies; double hook leader’s and bead knots. Matt will cover coastal and local rivers, peak run timing, and productive water heights he has found in those rivers.
Thanksgiving is the official kickoff of the winter steelhead season so what better time to get dialed in.

Rusty knows worms! And all other types of techniques also.
It will be well worth your time to hear what he has to say.

I give him two thumbs up! Even if he is a Beaver Believer.

MOLALLA CHAPTER OF NORTHWEST STEELHEADERS


Featuring


Jason Hambly of Lamiglas


December 20th


Fact. We are all addicted to winter steelhead. The amount of techniques and methods to fish for these fish are only more numerous by the types and makes of fishing rods available to us.


A long time NW staple, Lamiglas has been making salmon and steelhead rods for over 50 years. We are proud to present Jason Hambly of Lamiglas as he has agreed to join us to help everyone to understand the correct rod type for each different style of fishing for these addicting creatures. You’ll learn why certain qualities make each rod the unique tool that is best suited for each style of fishing. This will be your opportunity to ask Jason any question you can think of; What type of rod do I use for plug fishing, side drifting, drift fishing, bobber dogging, jig fishing, etc… What rod do you suggest for an all around do everything for steelhead? Jason has been in the game long enough he will be able to answer all of your questions.


On top of the great knowledge we’ll all learn from Jason but we’ll also be raffling off a G1000 steelhead rod at the meeting also. Can’t wait to see everyone.


The public is welcome to join us for a fun and educational meeting for everyone.


6:30 PM, December 20th at Farmstead Restaurant, 28313 S Hwy 213, Molalla, OR


Dinner and drinks are available before and during the meeting.

Hi, The Rookie. A good place to get Sandy River fishing tips is at the Sandy River Chapter, more info here http://www.nwsteelheaders.org/chapters/sandy-river/. Sorry for the not-so-quick reply to your three posts. I've yet to fish the Sandy this winter, have focused on the Clack this year, but people are catching fish. Some good guides to learn the ropes are Jack Glass, Ed Fast, Trevor Storlie. They are all part of the Sandy Chapter, Check out the chapter, you'll learn the river quick that way.

Default Spey Fishing clinic

Have you ever been curious about two-handed rods for fly fishing? Heard about the Spey fishing craze, but not sure what it’s all about? Are you an experienced Spey angler looking to improve? Whatever your interest level in Spey fishing, the Molalla Steelheaders’ January meeting is one you won’t want to miss.

Marty and Mia Sheppard of Little Creek Outfitters are providing a Spey fishing clinic. Marty is the premier fly guide on the John Day, who also guides on the Sandy and Grande Ronde rivers. Mia is a world-class women’s competive distance caster, who is an expert Spey angler in her own right. Mia also works for the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership to conserve Oregon’s hunting and fishing heritage.

Marty and Mia will explain the basic Spey setup: choosing rods, reels, lines and flies; show you how to improve your Spey casting, including fixing common mistakes; and detail their experience on how to catch steelhead using two-handed rods.

What: Molalla Steelheaders Spey fishing clinic
When: 6:30 pm, Jan. 17

Where: Farmstead Restaurant in Arrowhead Golf Course, 28313 S. Highway 213, Molalla, OR.

Default Oregon's nutrient enhancement bill

Want to be able (legally) to put your fish carcasses back into the river for nutrient enhancement in Oregon?

Steelheaders has introduced a bill this legislative session that would allow anglers to do just that, similiar to what Washington, Idaho and Alaska already have in place and encourage. The hearing for the bill (HB 2697) is on Thursday, Feb. 28 during the 8 am hearing slot in House Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources, Room D on the main concourse of the state capitol.

If you can, attend to provide support for the bill. If you can't attend, please send a note of support to the committee's staff at [email protected]. To track the bill and read the bill language visit http://gov.oregonlive.com/bill/2013/HB2697/

Default Sandy River Spring Chinook Classic

Wondering what you can to do to help protect fisheries from people trying to get rid of hatcheries? Why not go fishing?! Steelheaders, in cooperation with Dick's Sporting Goods, Red's Guide Service, Yakima Bait, Wright & McGill, and the Sandy River Chapter of the Steelheaders, are hosting the Sandy River Spring Chinook Classic this year on June 1. Proceeds go to a legal fund established to protect hatcheries from lawsuits that seek to shut them down.


Cost is only $60 and you can fish anywhere in Oregon and Washington. For more information or to register, please visit: http://www.nwsteelheaders.org/sandyclassic/

McLoughlin Chapter of Northwest has a meeting on May 14th. The Guest speaker for May is scheduled to be a representative from Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership. They will be talking about the water project that is scheduled to begin here within the next year or so across the Willamette
from Gladstone water intake, across Meldrum Bar and over to Lake Oswego's Walluga Reservoir and off to the pump station at Tigard. It is a trenchless method using a drilling method called horzional directional drilling. This is going to be a big project, and they want to come talk to fishermen to explain exactly what will be taking place and what kind of disruption there will be and when and what to expect. If you want to hear first hand and not second hand, attend the meeting on May 14th, at Denny's on old 82nd. To hear first hand is way better...that way you will get the FACTS straight.
See you there!

SALEM CHAPTER OF NORTHWEST STEELHEADERS
Featuring
JEREMY JAHN
The Kokanee Kid
May 21st

Jeremy will be talking about Kokanee fishing and his top secret techniques. He will be bringing some of his products to the meeting that he sells on his web page http://kokaneekidfishing.com/

The public is welcome to join us for a fun and educational meeting for everyone.
7:00 PM, May 21st, at Keizer City Hall, 930 Chemawa Rd NE.
http://www.salemnwsteelheaders.org/

Jeremy didn’t realize the true “VALUE” of targeting kokanee until a few years back he has dedicated to pass on his family’s top secret kokanee techniques to others wanting to enjoy this wonderful sport. By breaking down the variables, knowing what gear works, and being adaptable on the lakes filling your freezer with some of the best tasting fish in Oregon isn’t a issue. Kokanee fishing has become more than just a sport to him it’s a way of life and he warns you its very addictive. He gets his whole family involved in kokanee fishing and hopes one day that his kids will carry on sharing information about this sport to others. Jeremy has his own website KokaneeKidFishing.com which gives detailed fishing reports, and he has been working some videos. Jeremy and his wife, Debbie, are on the board of directors of Kokanee Power of Oregon and are hosting the Green Peter derby July 13th, for more details visit KokaneePowerOregon.com. If you’re interested in getting into kokanee fishing or you just want to consistently catch limits, don’t miss out on this opportunity.

Molalla Chapter of the NW Steelheaders' next meeting is scheduled for May 16th at the Farmstead Restaurant at 6:30pm. As always the public is welcome to join us. Dinner and drinks are always available before and during the meeting.

Our speaker this month is Adam Milner of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Adam will be joining us to discuss the many new changes taking place in the Molalla River Recreation Corridor. One of the big changes is the new designated overnight campground areas and the status of the construction and plans of when they'll be opened up to the public. These campgrounds will greatly affect the fishing opportunities within the corridor, in a good way. On top of listening to what Adam has to say regarding some of the changes, he is also looking for some input from our group on some of the details of these fishing improvements. Make sure you show up so you can be heard.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.
