Edmonds Fly Fishing group donates to high school club

The Olympic Fly Fishers of Edmonds recently gave a monetary contribution to the Edmonds Stream Team and Students Saving Salmon, an Edmonds-Woodway High School conservation club.

The Stream Team works with high school students from the Edmonds-Woodway High School’s Students Saving Salmon club to support local salmon populations. This involves placing coho and chum salmon eggs in local streams using remote site incubators and placing juvenile coho salmon in upper stream areas that are otherwise blocked to adult spawner passage. The Edmonds Stream Team, with retired fishery biologist Joe Scordino as Project Leader, has permits from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to do this work.

The Olympic Fly Fishers of Edmonds promotes fly fishing through education, conservation and camaraderie. Through the Olympic Fly Fishers Foundation 501(c)(3), donations are made each year to support the betterment of local streams and lakes.

State Farm donates to Mountlake Terrace food bank
