The Trout Line Newsletter - April 2, 2018


April 2, 2018


Welcome to The Trout Line Newsletter! This is our Tualatin Valley Trout Unlimited Chapter newsletter that will be coming out twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month.

  President's Corner

I hope everybody had a wonderful spring break/Easter and was able to get some fishing in.  I usually head to the Wallowa River for spring break but the fishing and weather reports haven't been that great this year so I decided to pass.  If it improves before the season ends I might have to run over there for the weekend.

We have an outing coming up on April 15, it is a day trip to Lost Lake in Clatsop County.  If you have any questions please contact Andy Andrews (

I want to remind everybody that we will not be having an April chapter meeting due to a schedule conflict but we will have a May's chapter meeting.  May's meeting will feature Joel La Follette who will talk about the Oregon Trout Trail.

I am currently working on putting together a Stream Girls program for the Girl Scouts in the Portland area.  Stream Girls is an outdoor STEM program that teaches girls about observing a stream, collecting flow data, sampling aquatic bugs, fly tying and fly casting.  More information can be found on  I am hoping to put on an event in June or July.

The next newsletter will come out on April 16 that will feature the fly of the month by Mike Gentry.  I hope everybody has wonderful month and can get some fishing in.  See you at the next meeting.

***No April Meeting ***

May Meeting: May 9, 2017

Speaker:  Joel La Follette

Topic:  Oregon Trout Trail

The Oregon Trout Trail was conceived as a way to inspire anglers to explore the great state of Oregon.  We have such an abundance and variety of Trout fishing opportunities in our state yet many of us are stuck in a rut of fishing the same waters all the time.  The Oregon Trout Trail is a challenge to any and all who wish to try to catch and release 6 native Trout species in our state.  Hopefully in doing so they will discover places they have never been to before and gather memories that will last a lifetime.  For more information about Joel La Follette
