Grande Ronde property acquisition project update

Posted by Alex Fisher, Tuesday, November 12th, 2019 @ 10:54am

  • WVFF Board members remain interested in supporting our general membership's ability to determine whether or not any significant amount of funds could be used for a particular project or not. The Grande Ronde property acquisition initiative is now included in this process. Jim Athearn, past President of IEFFA has today, been informed of our club history of decision making in this regard. Importantly, it has now been determined that WVFF will have the time to do that.

    On our next Membership meeting (Thursday November 21), members will be able to review this initiative, consider the pros and cons, then decide for themselves. Toward that end, your Board members hope that as many of you as possible are able to attend that meeting.

    That particular meeting will have other important issues to address such as new Board member nominations, our revised website and planning for our annual Auction Dinner.

    Please note that our club will remain vibrant only if its members continue to become involved.

    Sincerely,
    Alex Fisher
    President, WVFF

     

Lower Grande Ronde River Land Access

Posted by Alex Fisher, Saturday, November 9th, 2019 @ 8:26pm

  • We have been asked by the Inland Empire Fly Fishing Club to contribute to the Wild Steelhead Coalition's effort to purchase 8 acres of land just 2.5 miles west of the mouth of this great river. This property offers excellent river frontage and access.

    The Coalition will become the temporary owner until WDFW sets up the property as  ermanent public camping.

    A private owner has offered this parcel to be developed as a public camping site before considering a much more lucrative sale for other purposes.

    WSC has put down nonrefundable earnest money set to expire at the end of this month. The property sale price is $25K, with an additional $5K allotted to environmental studies and real estate fees. IEFFC will fund an additional real estate attorney review of this transaction.

    Our Board was aware of this situation and was considering offering $3K if $27K had already been allocated. 

    The majority of the Board has affirmed this contribution and we had hoped to present the details in our upcoming members meeting on 11/21 for their approval.

    Yesterday, I was informed that the deal is ready to be consummated, if we help WSC with the remaining funds.

    As President, I have decided to direct our Treasurer to go ahead and send the funds to WSC, anticipating that our membership would likely approve, even if only with a slim majority. Our customary review process is a bit more cumbersome than this particular transaction could afford.

    An opportunity to ask more questions about this or to throw a couple of rotten tomatoes will be afforded each of you at the next session, listed above. Please attend.

    Sincerely,

    Alex Fisher 
    President

WDFW invites public to listening sessions

Posted by Eric Davis, Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 @ 10:52am

  • WDFW invites public to listening sessions on target shooting at the Wenas Wildlife Area

    YAKIMA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has scheduled two meetings in early October to enable the public to provide input on target shooting options at the Wenas Wildlife Area.

    Public comments will help the Wenas Wildlife Area Target Shooting Advisory Committee develop recommendations on how WDFW can ensure that recreational target shooting opportunities respond to public needs and interests, protect public safety, preserve wildlife habitat, and reduce fire risk.

    The meetings, which will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m., are scheduled for: •Monday, Oct. 2, at the Selah Civic Center, 216 S 1st St., Selah; and •Wednesday, Oct. 4, in the Manastash Room at the Kittitas Valley Event Center, 901 E. 7th Ave., Ellensburg.

    Each meeting will begin with a brief presentation about the target shooting project; the advisory committee's progress to date; and draft recommendations for improving the target shooting experience, including enhanced public education, safety practices, and law enforcement.

    More information about the Wenas Wildlife Area is available on the WDFW website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/wildlife_areas/wenas/

    For more information on the advisory committee, see http://wdfw.wa.gov/about/advisory/wtsc/
