Trout Unlimited's Conservation Efforts in Oregon
Featuring Kyle Smith

Thursday, January 10, 7 p.m.

Kyle Smith is the Oregon Field Coordinator for Trout Unlimited. Kyle started fly fishing twenty years ago in Northern California, where his home waters were the McCloud, Fall, and Trinity Rivers. Now a resident of Salem with his wife and son (coming in January 2019), Kyle enjoys fly fishing for salmon on the Oregon Coast and chasing steelhead with single hand and spey rods. When he’s not fishing or working to protect Oregon’s public lands and waterways, he enjoys waterfowling, big game hunting, and hiking in Oregon’s high desert chukar country with a shotgun and his dog Sawyer.

Kyle will present an overview of all that TU is doing in Oregon and how the organization has grown in the state over the past ten years. Kyle’s presentation will focus on his work with Trout Unlimited’s Sportsmen’s Conservation Project working to protect and conserve public lands in some of Oregon’s most heralded fisheries. He’ll also discuss TU’s Wild Steelheaders United campaign.
