Episode 75 – The North Umpqua Coalition

This week I’m joined with some members of the North Umpqua Coalition; Jennifer Fairbrother and Kirk Blaine of Native Fish Society and Dave Moskowitz of The Conservation Angler. We talk about the Formation of North Umpqua Coalition, the difference between hatcheries and hatchery programs, wild fish and their ability to adapt, the ODFW being willing to stop releasing the Rock Creek Hatchery fish and the judge-ordered pause on that decision, how to convince others that the fish need help, oceanic┬áchanges and their effects, how to enjoy our rivers in the summer without disrupting the fish, and the July 16th Bass Bash.
