October 4th Meeting to Feature Chris Clancy
We will be hosting Chris Clancy. He is the regional fisheries biologist for Montana and works out of the Hamilton office. He will be giving us an update on the projects he has been working on this summer.
“Every time an FFB member has a great day on the Bitterroot, a debt of gratitude is owed to Chris Clancy – and many members probably don’t know why. I remember when Chris began his career here as a full-time resource biologist for Fish Wildlife and Parks. A good day’s float fishing, then, might consist of twenty fish, most of them under 11” and rarely one over 14”. A couple of fish might be cutthroats – and a 14” cutty was a rare event. Over the course of Chris’ work on our behalf we know what has happened: we enjoy the outstanding fishing that has made the Bitterroot the third-most-heavily fished river in Montana today. Come out and hear the latest from Chris – and show your appreciation for the job he continues to do.” - Chuck Stranahan
