Trout Unlimited banquet funds trout and salmon protection in Oregon

The Trout Unlimited Banquet held Feb. 11 at Territorial Vinyards winery was a huge success. Volunteers raised money to fund local Trout Unlimited projects in the coming year. Members voiced opinions on what direction the chapter should take in 2007. The consensus was that Chapter 678 should organize more trips, both habitat restoration and fishing.

The Eugene Chapter of Trout Unlimited plans to participate in more riparian habitat restoration and monitoring of the Swift Creek project with USFS and ODFW. The Chapter will also be hosting several fly fishing trips in the coming months, including a March Brown trip on the McKenzie and several Cascades High Lakes trips.

Look for an events calendar in the coming weeks, in the mail or at a fly shop near you!
