Here’s some great “feel good” stuff for this report. The second annual Wenatchee River Clean Up, put on by the Chelan County Cascadia Conservation District and Trout Unlimited is coming up on Saturday, August 14th. The clean up organizers are looking for volunteers to walk the shorelines of the Wenatchee River and for kayakers and rafters to float the stream and look for trash and debris. Last year approximately 3,000 pounds of metal debris and trash was removed from the banks of the Wenatchee, and there is more out there. There will be a lunch served and entertainment provided at 12 noon at the Cashmere Riverside Park. To learn how you can help out, call 509-667-6436. On another note, the Colville Confederated Tribes have stepped up again and funded the operation of the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife in Colville. This is the second year that the tribe has funded the hatchery. They are spending over $114,000.00 to make sure that the hatchery can produce the 409,000 trout and kokanee that is supplied to 72 lakes in Ferry, Stevens and Pend Oreille counties. Trout and kokanee fishing in these counties is terrific, and thanks to the tribe, it will continue.
