Wine Dinner Cancelled

The annual Wine Dinner scheduled for August 18 has been cancelled due to the extremely unhealthy air and smoke in our valley.  According to our sources, the air quality is only going to get worse with the added smoke now coming from the California fires.  We don't see it clearing up any time soon or in time for our event which is held outdoors.

Those who paid for reservations and who's check has already been been processed will be mailed a refund.  If your check was mailed within this past week, it has not been deposited.  Those checks will be shredded and you will be notified by email.

We apologize for the inconvenience and regret having to cancel this event, but it is done in the best interest of those attending, as well as the caterer and those working at the winery.

We will try again next year!

LNG Letter

The following is a letter sent by one of our members.  Feel free to use it as is or modify the center paragraph or replace it.  Please confine your concerns to the water related concerns.  Share how the project would impact you and your water related activities.  Use the old school snail mail.  A paper letter is harder to ignore as compared to an email.  Send two letters since we want booth entities to deny this project.

Attn:  401 Water Quality Certification Project Manager, Chris Stine

Dear Mr. Krug and Mr. Stine:


I strongly oppose the proposed Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Pacific Connector Pipeline project (NWP-2017-41) because it will significantly harm southern Oregon’s rivers, streams, wetlands, and estuaries. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality should deny the Clean Water Act 404 and 401 permits because the project does not comply with the Clean Water Act and it is not in the best interest of Oregonians.
The state of Oregon has expended a great deal of money and effort to improve the quality of its waterways. The Rogue River is one of them. As you may be aware, the Rogue River is currently expected to have a very good run of fall chinook salmon.  It is one of the few rivers in CA, WA and OR that is doing well with regards to salmon and steelhead.  Why in the world would anyone approve of a project in which a pipeline will be buried in the Rogue River?  The damage done to the river by the construction of a buried pipeline would be immense and would certainly cause irreparable harm to its ecosystem. There is no way that this project could be completed without doing severe damage to the Rogue.  For this reason alone, the case for denying the permits should be clear.  The Rogue fisheries are improving, perhaps due to the removal of several dams that impeded the spawning of salmon and steelhead.  It would be madness to pursue a project that would harm the improvements that have been made. This project is not in the public interest.
There are many other reasons as to why the necessary permits should be denied.  I will not detail them because the problem outlined above is so very clear that this alone should make the denial the rational choice.
I strongly oppose this project and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality should deny the Clean Water Act 404 and 401 permits. 
Thank you for your time and consideration on this important issue.
Sincerely,
(insert your name and address)

Message from Oregon DEQ


Statewide, OR—The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has extended by 30 days the public comment period on an application for water quality certification from the Jordan Cove Energy Project. DEQ received a large number of public requests for an extension. The project proposes building a liquefied natural gas facility on the North Spit of Coos Bay near North Bend and a connecting roughly 230-mile pipeline near Malin that would cross Klamath, Jackson, Douglas and Coos counties.
View the full news release at: https://www.oregon.gov/newsroom/Pages/NewsDetail.aspx?newsid=2810.

Time is running out



Today in Astoria, Oregon a comment writing workshop is being hosted by nolngexports.org.  This coalition of conservation minded organizations knows that if this pipeline and terminal are built, then more are soon to follow.  Most of us do not want to live in what Oregon would look like with a network of pipelines and terminals.

On Monday, July 9th, Medford and Coos Bay will have their own comment writing
workshop.

Thursday, July 12th, Grants Pass and Portland will have their own comment writing workshop.

This is a state-wide coalition effort.  Go to nolngexports.org to see what this is all about.  

The Comment period for DEQ is slipping away.  Urge DEQ to deny this pipeline and terminal.  Come to the workshop on July 9that 6:00 in the Medford Library or July 12th at 5:30 in the Library in Grants Pass.

Help Needed
As all of your aware, the primary mission of the Rogue Flyfishers Club is to improve conservation of our fish and the habitat they live in so we can enjoy the continuing benefits of a healthy fish habitat.

Ryan Battleson, Assistant Biologist at ODFW has been working very closely with the rogue Flyfishers to assure that the Holy Water is improved as a great fishery for our use.  In addition to staffing our Holy Water committee that is co-chaired by Jack Patterson and Will Johnson, Ryan has been very actively involved with club members in trapping fish in various tributaries around the Rogue Valley that support the steelhead we like to catch in the Rogue River.

One of these projects, located in Galls Creek just outside of Gold Hill, has been undertaken by Ryan and a few club members.  They need our help in tending a fish trap at Galls Creek so Ryan can use the data gleaned to improve the steelhead fish habitat in the area.  Currently Kirk Kowalke, John MacDiarmid and myself are helping to trap fish for this project, but Ryan is in critical need of additional club members to volunteer on Tuesdays, Saturdays or Sundays of each week so he can have two-person teams each day of the week.

If you are interested in volunteering for this project, which takes no more than 1-2 hours per assigned day, please contact Ryan at the email or office phone noted below so he can put the rest of the team together.  This project is very important to our club.

Thank you.  Harry Foster

Diamond Lake Outing - June 9th

DIAMOND LAKE OUTING JUNE 9TH
The Diamond Lake Outing will be held June 9th and hosted by Steve Day and Keith Hardcastle.  We will meet at the Diamond Lake South Boat Launch at 0700, where coffee and breakfast burritos will be served.  A brief fishing report will be provided prior to heading out to fish. 
Historical weather for this date shows highs in the mid 60’s to mid 70’s with lows ranging from the low 30’s to mid 40’s.  Thunder showers are always a possibility.
Diamond Lake is primarily a boat or personal watercraft fishery.  If you don’t have a boat, make plans to be in one.  There is limited shore access at various locations around the Lake however being on the water is a huge advantage.
The bugs at Diamond can be quite daunting.  While on shore and around the campgrounds and resort, mosquitoes can be a hassle, so bring your bug spray.  Once on the Lake, the mosquitoes are no problem, however a heavy midge hatch can be challenging if the wind is not blowing.  I recommend bringing a buff or other head gear that has bug netting. 
With regard to gear, a single handed rod of any size with floating line and the necessaries for indicator style fishing in 5 to 14 feet of water will do well.  Chronomid patterns, pheasant tails, hares ears and calibeatis nymphs in sizes 14 to 20 and small balanced leeches often times work well.  For those that prefer to strip or wind drift, a rig with an intermediate or hover line will serve well.  Wooly Buggers, leech patterns and soft hackles are favorites.
For those folks attending the barbecue on Saturday evening, we will meet at our campsite in the Diamond Lake Campground along the east shore of the Lake around 6:00.  We will be in spaces G31 and G34 which are located at the far south end of the campground and adjacent to the South Shore Pizza Parlor.  To access the campsites simply park in the Pizza Parlor lot and take the trail at the north end of the parking area north into the campground.  It’s a very short walk.  Bring a beverage of choice, a piece of meat that you would like to have grilled and a side dish for potluck and we’ll have a great time by the fire.  We will provide plates, utensils, napkins etc.
Any questions e-mail Steve at icrsrd303@gmail.com

LNG Pipeline---Important

This message just came from Rogue Climate.  The Rogue Climate staff have been working very hard to stop the LNG pipeline.  Lets support them with our phone calls, letters, and they need financial support to keep this going.


Today, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the US Army Corps opened a 60-day public comment period for a critical permit that, if denied, could stop the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline. 
Oregon DEQ is responsible for deciding whether this massive fracked gas pipeline and export terminal would negatively impact the water quality in Oregon. Federal regulators cannot approve Jordan Cove LNG or the Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline if the Oregon DEQ decides that the project does not comply with Oregon’s water quality standards. Fracked gas pipelines in Oregon, Maryland, and New York were stopped because state agencies denied this permit.
For the next two months, it’s up to all of us to submit comments that demonstrate that the impacts of this project would be far too devastating for the health and safety of our communities, clean water, and the local economy. 
Next week we’ll send out more information about comment writing workshops across the region and information for submitting your comments to the agencies. Until then, here are three ways you can help stop the pipeline and LNG export terminal:
1. Call DEQ to ask for a longer public comment period in our communities:
DEQ has only given our communities 60-days to write comments about how this project would impact Oregon. Can you call Richard Whitman, the Director of DEQ, at (503) 229-5696, to ask for an extension of the public comment period for Jordan Cove’s Clean Water Act certification to 120-days?
2. Volunteer to help turn out people to write comments. Sign up for volunteer shifts HERE.
3. Donate HERE to help support comment workshops across the route of the pipeline.
Thanks,
Allie and the Rogue Climate Team

Fly Casting Classes Resume!


Fly Casting Classes

At Hedrick School

Have Resumed

 
 

Rogue Flyfishers Club member John MacDiarmid, who is a FFI Certified Fly Casting Instructor, assisted by club members, Tom Collett and Bob Pierce, will once again be providing free fly casting classes at Hedrick Middle School, 1501 E. Jackson in Medford each Monday evening throughout the summer months.  The classes are held every Monday at 6:00 p.m. except those days when a holiday falls on Monday or there is bad weather.  The last evening will be September 10th.  The classes are an excellent way for beginning fly fishers to be introduced to the techniques of fly casting and they also provide an opportunity for experienced fly fishers to hone their skills through a little practice.  People interested in attending one or more sessions should bring a favorite one-handed fly rod, reel, line and leader for practicing on the lawn.  If a person does not have immediate access to their own gear, the club can provide them with it when they arrive for the classes.  The classes are not only an opportunity for instruction by excellent instructors, but also an opportunity to catch up with fellow anglers about all of the elements of fly fishing.
