Greetings!! With all the things going on this year it seems like forever since a President’s Message was prepared for you. It has be a busy summer and now we are seeing it come to an end, although the weather is still holding on to summer. Hope you all had a chance to get out and fish and enjoy our great outdoors.
Now we are starting to see our fall fish return to the rivers and although the expected returns are not as strong as years pass you still have a chance of connecting with a Steelhead or even a Chinook.
After our month off we are now getting down to business for the remainder of the year. We have a good list of speakers coming up and to start the line up is a founding member, Jim Coulthrust. He will be speaking on Fishing in Xcalak, Mexico. He has been doing it for years and spends a lot of his time pursuing fish in this area. It should be interesting and informative.
Of course we will be having a September fish-a-long and this year it should be fun and different as we plan to go after small mouth bass on the John Day River. More information will follow on location, flies, etc. so mark you calendars for 9/23/17.
Please, welcome Dave Pelgorsch as our new Director of Technology. He joins to board to assist in our various technology issues and we are looking forward to working with him in the upcoming months. Next time you see him be sure to thank him for his willingness to assist the club in this important area.
As posted on the blog, this Sunday 9/10/17 is the 15th annual Clackamas River Cleanup. It is a great event and your efforts are rewarded with a BBQ after the event. Please register per the message on the blog. Hope you can help out.
Remember our sponsors who make a lot of things happen for us with their continued support. Drop into their shops and say thanks or better yet buy something or book a trip.
