Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife:

Start a new Thanksgiving tradition:  Take family and friends fishing for free on Friday and Saturday, November 25 and 26.  It’s a free fishing weekend in Oregon and no licenses, tags or endorsements will be required to fish, crab or clam anywhere in the state.

Trout Update:  Lake Billy Chinook to Benham Falls: rainbow trout, brown trout.  Open for trout all year. Fishing restricted to artificial flies and lures. No size or limits on brown trout and no harvest of bull trout.

Early Morning and Late Evening

These are two of my favorite times at The Cove, and two of the times of day that I remember how lucky I am to work in such a beautiful place. The warm sunlight reflected onto the cliffs, the ticking of the sprinklers in the cool morning air, the quiet lake, the happily sleeping campers that are just getting their vacations started – it all reminds me to be grateful for having such a great job.

There’s an old Karuk story about how Coyote brought fire to the people, and in the process got his tail burned – which is why even today, the tip of a coyote’s tail is black. As sun sets in the park and it fills with the sounds of clicking insects, I know the coyotes are running, the deer are grazing with their spotted fawns, and the rattlesnakes are starting their evening hunt.
