Silver Creek Restoration

By | conservation & projects

On October 8th,  Hemingway TU volunteers gathered at Silver Creek Preserve to partner with The Nature Conservancy to plant native plants of various sizes to help protect and restore areas of the preserve. Dayna Gross the Preserve Manager oversaw the plantings and lunch was provided for all the workers.  It was a rewarding day for all the participants.  There will be more opportunities for planting and stream restoration in the future. Dave Spaulding, our project chair coordinated and participated in this restoration effort.

Winter FlyFishing in the Magic Valley by Ed Northen

Winter fishing can be some of the best fishing of the year without the crowds.
It provides solitude, wildlife, winter beauty and a fishing opportunity for the house bound angler.
The program will address  appropriate gear, techniques, flies, places to fish, safety and and how to be prepared in winter.
Ed is passionate about flyfishing, he has guided for Silver Creek Outfitter since 2006 and enjoys sharing his knowledge of fishing and river ecosystems with others.
He is one of the founding board members of Hemingway Chapter Trout Unlimited and a past President of the Chapter.
The protect, reconnect, restore sustain mission of Trout Unlimited is something he seeks to apply to all of the work he is involved in in the Wood River Valley and beyond.
Other activities he enjoys are x-country skiing, trail running, backpacking to high mountain lakes, exploring the waters U.S and Candid with his wife Carmen in their 1984 VW Vanagon camper .
He is a published poet and retired from his career with the Orange County Fire Department ,as a Fire Captain and Paramedic after 34 years.
