Wy-Kan-US-Mi Wa-Kish-Wit – “Spirit of the Salmon” was the plan to enhance wild salmon in the Columbia River Basin. Former BRTU President Geoff FitzGerald worked on the Deschutes for the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon to increase natural production of the spring Chinook salmon (sacred brother) from 2002-2005. Geoff will cover everything from adult outplanting to redds and smolts to carcasses. Plus he will reveal some angling secrets for these magnificent fish.

And, remember! BRTU will be inviting Geoff to the Spice of Life at 5:00 pm before the meeting. Long-time

TU supporter Karen Suennen will be donating 10% of the proceeds to our

club. So please come join us for dinner.
