Christmas Trees for Smolts

For those of you in the Portland metro area that want to help juvenile anadramous fish and dispose of your Christmas tree, here is your chance. The Tualatan Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited is collecting Christmas Trees clear of ornaments and tinsel for smolt habitat.

This is a great idea that benefits both you and juvenile fish. Please stop by the Royal Treatment Fly Shop in West Lynn, Oregon on January 12th or 19th where volunteers will be able to assist you. There is a suggested donation of $10.00 for the process.

On January 12th you will also find Marty and Mia Sheppard from Little Creek Outfitters present at the shop. They will be discussing winter steelheading on the Sandy River and tying a few flies.

Stop by, put juvenile salmon under your Christmas tree and learn a few things at the shop, then head over to the Clack for some fishing time.
