Wickiup Pickiup

If you haven’t heard, the Wickiup Reservoir is at it’s lowest level, ever. And while what has led to that happening is a complex problem, a community effort is underway to take this somber situation, and do something positive with it.

A community clean up of epic proportions. Wickiup Reservoir is currently at unprecedented low levels that have not been seen since the early 1950’s. This has exposed a lot of garbage, let’s work together to clean it up! Our goal is to bring our community together to take care of this place we live in, let’s see how much trash we can collectively remove!

Carpooling encouraged, once you arrive at the dam we’ll point you in the right direction to an access spot to park and get started.

We’ll supply:
Trash bags 
Beverages 
Donuts

You’ll need to bring: 
Gloves
Muck boots/or waders/or sturdy Chaco like sandals it’s sandy, silty, and sometimes mucky.

Thanks to the following generous supporters: The Broomsmen, Bend Fly Shop, Confluence Fly Shop, Fin and Fire, Fly and Field Outfitters, The Patient Angler Fly Shop, Troutdoors Marketing

Please spread the word, we want to remove as much trash as possible!
