 CLUB MESSAGE  - February, 2018

Jim Tuggle opened 2018 with an interesting and informative discussion on his perspective on near term fishing prospects. Jim pointed out that while the future may look dismal in some areas there are others that are promising. For example, he pointed out there was a significantly higher number of returning Chinook to the Deschutes Hatchery than the historical average. The official tally was over 29,000 returning Chinook well above the 2017 return. If this continues, it bodes well for late summer and fall fishing opportunities in Area 13. He also suggested we look elsewhere for fishing opportunities. For example, we could look freshwater species like Columbia River Smallmouth Bass, Eastern Washington and Columbia River Walleye and the many lakes in our area that are stocked with Rainbow Trout. Our multi-species derby supports this concept as 12 of the 30 species entered were fresh water. We have several events on the calendar in the upcoming weeks and months. We will be manning the PSA booth at the Washington Sportsmans Show on January 28. The same day we have scheduled an afternoon clam dig at Roosevelt Beach subject to WDFW approval and weather. There will be a minus tide at 4:06 PM which allow for excellent clam digging as well as daylight time for surf perch fishing. There will be more on this event forthcoming. The highlight in February is the Skookumchuck River Clean-Up on Saturday the 24th depending on weather. Kelly Corcoran, the event coordinator, notes that Trans-Alta, the property owner, has posted signs on the river recognizing our club’s efforts to maintain the shoreline and encouraging other users to do their part. They have donated money that will be used to pay for raffle prizes for those participating in the cleanup as well as a plaque thanking Thurston County Public Works for supplying the trash bags and them picking up at the conclusion of the event. The event will start at 10:00 AM, We plan on having a picnic lunch and a tour of the hatchery after cleaning the river bank. Kelly suggests that everyone might also want to bring their steelhead gear and take a shot at fishing for them. Our March event will be the annual Fishing Seminar on March 24. Plans for the event are currently being finalized. There will be more detail provided at our upcoming general meetings and in the newsletter as the date approaches. Just a couple of reminders, one the board is still looking to the members for suggested outings. We also need candidates for the one board position before the election in March. Finally, your 2018 dues are due now. If you want to be in February 1st member drawing, your dues must be paid.
