Make your dinner reservations
for the monthly meeting
Join Flyfishers Club of Oregon on October 11th for a presentation by Christina Murphy, recipient of the FCO 2016 scholarship award.

Christina Murphy is an Oregon native. She received three honors Bachelor’s degrees, in Biology, Fisheries & Wildlife, and International Studies, before pursuing a Fulbright research project in Chile and completing her Master’s degree at the Universitat de Girona in Spain. After years abroad, she returned to Oregon State University to start a PhD. She works regularly as part of a large team and is proud to participate in several scientific societies, including serving at the Vice President of the Oregon Chapter of the American Fisheries Society last year. Her research aims to understand ecological interactions within reservoirs located in headwaters of the Willamette River. The goal of her dissertation work is to inform dam and reservoir management decisions, especially regarding wild reservoir rearing juvenile Chinook Salmon.

Description of presentation:
To improve passage of wild juvenile spring Chinook Salmon downstream through dams, in 2011 the US Army Corps of Engineers began to draw down Fall Creek Reservoir to streambed levels for short periods during late fall/ early winter. In this and other upper Willamette Reservoirs, a cohort of wild juvenile Chinook Salmon enters the reservoir during early spring. We have been studying three reservoirs in the upper Willamette Basin to examine reservoir conditions experienced by these juveniles. This presentation will cover this reservoir rearing life history in wild juvenile Chinook Salmon and the interesting shifts observed in Fall Creek Reservoir following the new water management; including the diets of top predators, the unusual patterns of zooplankton prey distributions, and the changing Fall Creek Reservoir fish community. It will cover how we expect these changes to influence wild juvenile Chinook Salmon in Fall Creek Reservoir and current efforts to model their growth and behavior in these systems.
