Celebration For Wild Steelhead

Terry Edelmann of Fisheads Flies N Lore and Soul River are working together to on the Celebration For Wild Steelhead in Portland, Oregon this weekend, September 10th through 11th, 2011.

One part river cleanup, one part fly fishing workshop, and one part concert all to the benefit of wild steelhead.

From the press release...

"This weekend celebration promotes ethical and respectful fly fishing and the conservation of Wild North American Steelhead. This legendary species' habitat running along the western coast of North America from Alaska to Mexico is being threatened and their populations are being destroyed. This event encourages the community to come together to learn more about this iconic species and how we can come together and save them from extinction. By reaching out and sharing the sport of fly fishing with inner city youth, veterans, and new generations we can ensure the future of wild steelhead and the river ecosystems. There will also be a morning river cleanup on the Willamette river, free fly fishing instructional workshops for children and novice beginners, giveaways, and live music featuring The Rising Buffalo Tribe."
