Geoff Malloway from Central Coast Fly Fishing writes on Facebook: “Another successful Salinas River cleanup! We had an exceptional turnout thanks to the Salinas Valley Flyfishers, the Santa Cruz Fly Fishermen, CDFW , AmeriCorps and Trout Unlimited. Also, special thanks to Jefferson Farms (Jay and Benji) and MPWMD. A lot was accomplished but there’s always more to do.”
The Salinas Valley Fly Fishing club have been doing this cleanup for years right before the December opening of the Salinas river. There were about 25 people total who helped on the morning of November 22nd. SCFF was represented by Jeff Gose, Jeff Slaboden, Sam Bishop and Scott Kitayama. Great to meet people from the other organizations.
If you are fishing any of the coastal rivers this winter, Tim Frahm from Trout Unlimited asks that you fill out the “Central Coast Striped Bass Catch Reporting Survey” which shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds to fill out and will help better understand our local waters. The survey can be found at https://ee.kobotoolbox.org/x/wge1mabO
