August 2021 Presidents Message

Great news everyone! The High Rocks meeting room is open so we will be having a regular “in person” meeting September 21st (for our newer members, we don’t have meetings in August as too many of us are out of town). Our last meeting at High Rocks was February of 2020, about 18 months ago. It’s been a long road!

This months Fish A Long will be Saturday, August 21st. The location is still to be determined but given the hot weather it will most likely be on the Columbia or Willamette chasing Smallmouth Bass. The Fish A Longs schedule has its own page on our website.

I’ll get our July fishing reports out soon. As summer progresses hopefully you have been able to beat the heat and enjoy some quality time outdoors. The picture above is my daughter Kelsey kayaking the upper Sandy.

Brad Jonasson want’s everyone to know the Fly Fishing Challenge is still open and to sign up if you haven’t already.

Hoot Owl regulations remain in effect this month.

For several years now we have been posting monthly fishing reports. Looking back on them is a fun way to get ideas for local fly fishing opportunities currently happening or coming up. Type “August” in the search box and you’ll get all the past reports for that month. 

If there is anything you want to see on our blog, let me know. Thanks again to Jim Adams for resuming his fly tying column!

Please remember our sponsors, they are the lifeblood of the club. Stop by their shops and let them know you appreciate their support. Better yet buy something or book a trip. 

Good fishing! 

Dave Kilhefner
