1) ODFW will sponsor a river clean up on the South Santiam on Saturday, June 2nd.   They typically have 5-7 driftboats and as many people as they can safely fit in them and drift the river from Foster Dam in Sweet Home down to the Pleasant Valley Bridge, picking up garbage and doing a little fishing along the way.  Please let Jason Balderson know if you’d like to join. 541-990-0659

2) In addition, Jason and crew also try to do a couple of fun snorkeling trips up to the North Fork of the Siletz later in the summer where they get to swim with the wild summer steelhead and spring chinook that have made their way up there. If that interests you, please let Jason Balderson know and he’ll include you in the emails for those events.  See contact information above.
