CLUB MESSAGE Written by Vice President Allen Morrow

Click here for Complete April Club Message

We ended February with a very successful cleanup of the Skookumchuck River despite cold and snowy conditions. Over thirty members volunteered their Saturday to collect many bags of garbage from the shores of the river and to enjoy a great picnic lunch. This is an activity we have undertaken for several years and a number of participants commented that there appeared to be less trash than in previous years. Hopefully, that means that more people are packing their trash out. I would like to extend a very hearty thanks to Paula and Kelly Corcoran for their continued hard work in organizing this event. March was the beginning of a busy time for our club. Our first activity was a kids fishing opportunity at Cabela’s on March 10 and 11. 260 kids got a chance to catch a rainbow trout in our portable fish pond thanks to club members who volunteered their time on Saturday, Sunday or in many cases both days. Our next major event was our annual fishing seminar on March 24. Topics of discussion included Kokanee/Trout fishing in local lakes, improving your catch by using Hyper-Vis+, river bank fishing for Steelhead and fall Salmon, Surf Perch fishing, tips on improving/modifying your tackle and knot tying. April promises to be just as busy. The month will start with our annual seafood banquet on April 5. The evening will start with a social hour at 6:30p.m., followed by dinner featuring salmon and steamer clams ending with a raffle. The cost for this event is $15.00. Those interested in volunteering for set up and cleanup are encouraged to contact Dee Glenn at (360) 491-0431. Our big event for the month will be the annual Family Fish-In on April 21. We are the lead entity along with the City of Lacey Parks and Recreation Department. Each year we give 600 kids a fishing pole, some tackle and a chance to catch a trout at Long’s Pond in Lacey. We will need 30 to 40 volunteers on the day of the event. We also will need volunteers to help assemble the rods on the evening of April 16 at Long’s Pond White House. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Mike Silvers at The City of Lacey requires that all volunteers have a background check and Mike has the necessary forms.

Just a reminder, if you haven’t paid your 2018 dues by April 1st, you will be removed from our membership list. That means you will no longer receive our newsletter and the Reel News. Please send your check to Dee Glenn at 4608 17th Ave. SE, Lacey, WA 98503.
