As a devoted fly fisherman, and native Oregonian, I grew up working construction, and fishing many of Oregon’s streams and rivers. Along many of my fishing expeditions, I began to notice that there was a symbiotic relationship between our aquatic inhabitants and the health of our communities. As a river steward, I hope to help people understand the relationship between the health of our waterways and their direct relationship to our sustainable health as a society. I hope to bring light to new methods of not only preserving our beautiful streams and rivers but our fresh water supply, which gives us our ability to survive as a whole. Take what you need, but don’t stray far, we may both need it to save one another.
