The Great Outdoors: Teaching Hunting and Fishing to Girls

For generations of Central Oregonians, hunting and fishing can be a rite of passage for young boys. However, today young girls are showing they can do everything the boys can do, and more.

For this week’s Great Outdoors, Brian Jennings introduces us to a couple of parents who are encouraging young girls to learn the finer points of hunting and fishing in Central Oregon.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor, Camp Abbot Trading Company in Sunriver, for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.

Efforts to Preserve Top Fly-Fishing Spot in Central Oregon

There is a stretch along the Crooked River just outside of Prineville that has been known as one of the premiere spots for fly-fishing in the country for more than 50 years. But now, word has gotten out about a massive fish kill in the past couple of seasons and the anglers who contribute so much to the Central Oregon economy are staying away.

The Source Weekly‘s Brian Jennings looks at the events that led to the fish kill, and what’s being done to prevent it from happening again.
