In the early 20th century, the North Umpqua River drew anglers to Douglas County, Ore. They fished for Chinook and Coho salmon, as well as sea-run cutthroat trout. Summer fishing camps were established, leading to a storied angling history.
One piece of North Umpqua lore involved an Irish immigrant and World War I veteran, Victor “Vic” O’Byrne [oh-BERN], born in 1890.
