The Game Fish Art of Be Forbes

The finest compliment I ever received on my art ... It was during an art show in South Beach, Miami.  A three to four-year-old little girl in a stroller said to her mom: "Mommy, hold me up to the hole in the wall, so I can see the fish in the ocean better. "

1968 film that helped spur passage of Oregon's forest protection rules

We came across this film yesterday on Osprey Steelhead News but no embed code or links to its source were provided. Of course we managed to track it down at Oregon State University and you can grab the embed code HERE if you wish to share.

Pass Creek provides a penetrating account of a once-rich steelhead trout stream threatened by careless logging practices. Focusing on Oregon's North Umpqua River Basin, the film portrays the impact of clearcut logging on the small tributary streams where most of the river's steelhead are spawned and reared. The subtle interdependence of land and water and the disruption of the aquatic environment caused by stream-clogging debris and warming water are dramatically presented. Hal Riney and Dick Snider, advertising executives and fishermen, produced the film and donated it to Oregon State University. It was widely distributed and viewed in Oregon and throughout the United States through the 1970s and was influential in changing logging practices in the Northwest.

Hal Riney knew a thing or two about advertising and public relations.

Gone for decades, bull trout could soon return to the Clackamas River

Today the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will publish its proposal to reintroduce bull trout to the farthest upstream reaches of the Clackamas river, in the Mt. Hood National Forest. 

The last confirmed siting of a bull trout in the river was in 1963.
