Fishing workshop Feb. 23

Learn to fish for some of the most challenging freshwater sport fish in the world at a workshop Feb. 23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Steelhead and Spring Chinook 101, led by expert fisherman Greg Short, will cover topics ranging from rules and regulations, rods, reels, line, tackle and bait. Short will offer technical guidance to help improve skills for both beginners and experts.

Morning discussion will be held at the OSU Extension Office meeting room, followed by a hands-on practice on the lower Hood River.

The workshop is open to all ages (adult supervision required for kids under 12). An Oregon fishing license will be required for anyone age 14 or older. Harvest tags are required to keep steelhead and salmon.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
