On Monday June 26, there will be a fertiliztion placing project on the Chilliwack River.
Volunteers are needed and its a great way to give back to this most generous of rivers.
Meeting place will be "On The Way Store" parking lot and time will be 1:00 pm.
Please help out if your able, the good karma alone will make it worth the effort.
Thanks.
Rod Toth , Chilliwack River Action Committee.

Your help would be much appreciated Hoochie.
You would be placing fertilizer bags, mid stream(small streams), in some smaller tribs of the Chilliwack river. Hip waders or chest waders would be sufficient. Probably just carrying some fertilizer would be the hardest part.

Still looking for some volunteers. I'll personally tie up a handful of jigs for anyone who can spare an afternoon. Remember this years steelhead run. Some of the credit for this type of increased returns, can be attributed to fertilizing projects such as these. Steelhead spend a great deal of time in the river, as compared to most salmon,having a nutrient rich stream is crucial to healthy smolts, healthy smolts are stronger in the BIG BLUE. As an angler I think we can all appreciate that :lol: .
