Rogue Riverkeeper has taken on the LNG pipeline with the goal to stop the pipeline once and for all. One of the ways we can help is to write letters and make phone calls.  Come to this workshop to get ideas on how to write an effective letter.  Below is their message.

Time to take action

Public Comment Period on Jordan Cove LNG Pipeline

On TuesdayMay 22, 2018 the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers kicked off a 60-day public comment period for two critical Clean Water Act permits required for the proposed fracked gas Jordan Cove LNG pipeline project. 

On Saturday, July 21, 2018 the comment period ends. 
Click on this, Read the Notice Here.  This is 16 pages of vital information and numerous maps and charts.
This hugely complex project would cross the Rogue and more than 400 waterways across our region. Join others like yourself to make a difference and stop the Jordan Cove fracked gas pipeline project!
Add your voice and ask DEQ and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to extend the comment period and hold public information sessions in each of the four impacted counties!

When you click on this it takes you to a very good letter that is easy to send and someone has done all the work for you.

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
