Member Matters – April 2023

Upper Trout Creek Project Area

Please Mark your Calendars for the Special May Meeting and Keith Hansen Memorial Paddle Raise

Come support the Deschutes River Conservancy’s work on Trout Creek Tuesday, May 9th at the University Club! The evening includes our Wet Fly Hour at 6 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres and dinner at 7 p.m. with hosted wine at the tables.  The Deschutes River Conservancy staff will share information about their work on the Deschutes including their project to improve water quality on the all important Deschutes tributary, Trout Creek. We will conclude the evening with our annual Keith Hansen Memorial Paddle Raise to demonstrate the FCO’s commitment to conservation that benefits wild fish and their home rivers. This evening is our major 2023 fund raiser and it is for a very important cause. Please come to show your love for the Deschutes, learn more about Trout Creek, and make a difference for the fish that depend upon it. Go to the Conservation Corner to learn more about this important project on our beloved Deschutes River.
