The photo shows us on the Coquille River with "our" wild steelhead that we helped tag near the town of Coquille a couple of days before Christmas.
Janet signed us up for a wild steelhead telemetry tagging project conducted by Oregon Fish & Wildlife. We asked if we could watch the tagging operation and they said we could and even help if we wanted. So, we jumped right in and helped tag three steelhead on the day we were with them.
If people donate the cost of a radio tag they can name the steelhead that gets it. Ours is named "Homer" as in Simpson. You have to figure that it was a real "Doh!" moment when he ran into a net that led to aliens from above grabbing and measuring him, sticking two red plastic needle tags in his back, shoving a radio tag down his throat and taking a photo before he was returned to his world. Homer has recently been tracked heading up the middle fork of the Coquille.
Homer - I love it
