Middle Fork Feather River Alert!!!
Fellow guide Jay Clark (http://www.jayclarkflyfishing.com/) sent me this disturbing picture of trash along the banks of the MFFR near Two Rivers. The Wild & Scenic Middle Fork was one of the first rivers to be designated in 1968 and considered the most beautiful river in the state of California. But with trash like this left behind by some inconsiderate fools, it does not go over well with our visitors who come to fish and enjoy the beauty. What can you do? If you can pack it in, you can pack it out. Bring a trash bag along with you and when your done fishing pick some trash up - You'll feel good knowing that you left the river a little cleaner than before. Larger messes can be reported to the Forest Service at their Mohawk/Beckworth station. Through education in schools and reaching out to the youngsters we can change the mind set of "just chuck it". Thanks in advance for helping out.
