Oregon Trout Unlimited State of the Union

Trout Unlimited Chapter 678 sent representatives to the Oregon State Council meeting last weekend in Portland. Conservation Officer Karl Mueller wrote up the proceedings in a recent blog post.

Highlights include:
  • An update on the Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB) Carmen-Smith relicensing. Carmen-Smith is a hydropower project on the upper Mckenzie that blocks upstream passage for ESA listed Chinook and Bull trout.
  • Excitement over the TU-spearheaded Copper-Salmon Wilderness.
  • A look at the potential settlement of the Klamath Pacificorp relicensing issue.
