Toys for Tots 2015

The November 2015 meeting is a time to share with our community.  Please bring a toy or cash donation to the meeting.  We will have a representative from the United States Marines present to collect the toys.Toys for Tots2015

The brainchild of IEFFC member Jon Allan, this is one of our very important community programs. Over the years IEFFC has donated thousands of dollars and hundreds of toys to help those less fortunate. With our emphasis on kid’s fishing, this program is a natural for us.

Try to bring toys of a $10 value or higher and remember that cash is also very vital to the program.  Your donations are appreciated.

Bayley Lake Project – 2015

On October 24th, IEFFC volunteers cleared the
inlet channel to Bayley Lake. Bayley Lake 2015

This is an ongoing program every year or so
to improve spawning access for rainbows out of the lake. The intent is
that, if they are able to spawn, they will survive and can return to the
lake and carry over to provide a few larger fish to be caught. There was
some evidence that there might even have been some reproductive success this
year which would be an added bonus.

Members who participated included Jerry McBride, Bob Schmidt, Bob Burton, Leon Buckles, Lee Funkhouser, Stephen Aspinwall, Scott Fink, and Jim Athearn. 

After the work was finished, everyone had lunch and had a great afternoon catching a few of the fish.  An added surprise was a visit to Bayley Lake by WDFW officials who thanked our club for the work we have been doing on the channel.
