The Deschutes River Alliance has been focusing on research to determine the causes of biological changes in the lower Deschutes River. These include changes in hatch timing and insect populations, a proliferation of nuisance algae, and water quality changes in the last five years. The DRA has also embarked on a legal and advocacy program to become the voice for the defense of one of Oregon’s most important wild and scenic rivers, the lower Deschutes. On Saturday, November 14th, Greg McMillian and Andrew Dutterer from the Deschutes River Alliance will be here a Royal Treatment Fly Fishing to bring us up to speed on the issues facing our favorite river and DRA's efforts to protect it. This presentation starts at 10:00 AM.
Research findings from the DRA's 2015 fieldwork will be described during this informative presentation. The DRA's primary research focus this year has been on Lake Billy Chinook, the source of nearly all of the water in the lower Deschutes. The implications of the research findings are profound and important for the future of the lower river. Anglers and other river users need to be aware of what is happening on the Deschutes and find out how they can help. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers.
Greg and Andrew will also share new and additional findings on the lower Deschutes River, where they continue to operate a guide driven observational aquatic insect hatch database, and conduct ongoing water quality monitoring below the dams and EPA/DEQ validated aquatic insect population studies.
This session will begin at 10:00AM. Please visit DRA's website for more information.
