Jerry,


This Coastalhounddog will be here bright eyed and bushytailed early Saturday the 13th.
I sure wished the Nestucca Bay Clean-Up was scheduled for a different day than Saturday the 13th......Like the 14th.
It would have been nice to make a weekend out of this............
It might be useful to partner these two together since they are really so close in proximity.
Justa thought........................


What is projected for a turn-out for this event?
I know its Volunteer's only correct?


Hatchery and Wild Co-Exist .......... IMO

We do the Nestucca Bay Clean-Up every two years and if I'm still working for the Watershed Council then I will make sure to plan around the Whiskey Creek Fin Clipping event. I have had a number of folks tell me they would like to help out with the Clean-Up but have already committed to the Whiskey Creek event...I wish I could go to both myself

Fingers crossed for nice weather on the 13th!

I agree on the clean up. We have food for 400, sometimes we run real close. Folks come and go. See you on the 13th.

Hey Jerry looks like you had a good turnout, we were camping at Cape Lookout and came by the hatchery and looks like you had a good crowd, had I not been with the wife this weekend I would have been there so I'll look for your next event.

I'm surprised the hatchery spring Chinook runs on the wilson/ trask/ nestucca are still going. There are few if any wild ones on these rivers anymore. Not sure if that is due to hatchery fish or other factors, but given their near extinction it would seem wise to stop these hatchery programs ASAP to save the few remaining wild ones in this case. What few natives that do return are usually gut hooked on herring in bay or eggs in rivers and then released bleeding only to die, perpetuating the cycle of extinction.

I am not anti hatchery in general, but this is one of the few cases where I would strongly support ending hatchery programs here/ close fishing to protect what few wild spring Chinook remain here.

Funny, kind of seems like you are, as you hijack a thread celebrating the success of this volunteer program.

You need to get out and fish these rivers more to appreciate the opportunities we have to catch springers thanks to these programs. And yes their are wild fish in these rivers. No need to kill another good fishery because of a wild hatchery debate.

Total B.S. Hardly any pressure on this fishery. My guess, not one in 10 fish ever get a hook in them. Also, I have fished herring for 40 years and don't remember gut hooking being the norm. More like one in thirty.
