North Olympic Peninsula rivers at historic low flows amid worsening drought

 

Things are not looking good for the rivers on the Olympic Penninsula.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has reported low, warm river flows are causing high mortality among salmon trying to return to rivers to spawn.

While all of the North Olympic Peninsula's measured rivers are setting new daily records with each dawn, the Elwha and Calawah rivers are at their lowest for the month of June recorded in 117 years.

Take Action: The President needs to come to Bristol Bay

An important message from Save Bristol Bay.

Hello from the Save Bristol Bay campaign! We hope you are having a fantastic summer. 

Thank you for lending your voice over the years to help protect Bristol Bay from the threat of Pebble mine. While we have enjoyed many successes, Pebble is not dead yet, and we won’t stop fighting until it is. We're hoping to include YOU in the group of fishermen, tribes, business owners, conservationists and others across the country who recognize the immense economic and cultural value of Bristol Bay and plan to see this fight through to the end.

If you’re sticking with us, there is something quick you can do to help today.

The President is visiting Alaska next month and has stated he will visit select cities around the state. We have invited the President to Bristol Bay and we would like to add your name to our invitation. By signing this petition, you will help communicate to the White House that a visit from the President would be invaluable in reminding the Administration, presidential hopefuls, and the nation of the importance of protecting Bristol Bay – from the salmon-filled headwaters to open ocean.

Thank you for your time and continued efforts to save Bristol Bay!

Small fly fishing community emerging around Pierre and Fort Pierre

Every year tens of thousands of fly fishermen flock to the Missouri River. All of them are hoping to catch trout out of the legendary river’s cold, clear water. Of course that’s in Montana where the river is made up almost entirely of glacier and snow melt.

Around Pierre and Fort Pierre there’s a slightly different character to the Mighty Mo.
