September’s Program:

Dave Fast, senior scientist and manager of the Yakama Nations Fisheries and prolific author, presents the projects and efforts that are currently in progress to protect the Columbia River and Yakima drainage basins, a presentation that he has delivered to other fly clubs throughout Washington State. Biologists, like Dave Fast, and technicians are out in the field daily, actively restoring areas in accordance with traditions and with rigorous science. He comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and field experience with a Ph.D. College of Fisheries, University of Washington, a M.Sc.Department of Marine Sciences, University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, and B.Sc. St. John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota.

The Yakama Nation Fisheries is a program of the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation. From its inception in 1983, Yakama Nation Fisheries has employed scientific expertise in concert with traditional ecological knowledge to develop innovative projects and partnerships credited with restoring culturally important fish runs in the Columbia River. Yakama Nation Fisheries is headquartered on the Yakama Reservation.
