President’s Message – April 2023


Can you believe it is Springtime!!! Flowers blooming, trees budding, hatches emerge from the streams and lakes! Time to shed the bulky clothing and emerge as a springtime fisher.

Great time to organize and update your rods, lines, tippets, flies, waders etc. Don’t be shy, venture out to our local shops and they will be happy to provide excellent advice on what you will need to catch fish.

This month Jim Hillas has put together another outstanding monthly program. April 11th famed premium rod builder Kerry Burkheimer of C F Burkheimer Fly Rod Company will be the guest speaker.


If you haven’t already done so, please order your dinner using this link.

Our monthly dinner proves an excellent time to get together and tell great fish stories and enjoy meeting with friends.

The May 9th dinner meeting and Keith Hansen Memorial Paddle Raise will be an opportunity meet the Fly Fisher Foundation 2023 Conservation Grant Award winner, Deschutes River Conservancy. Please keep an eye out for the sign up information. Your support is always appreciated.

With gratitude,

Mike Radakovich President FCO
