About Us


The Emerald Empire Chapter of the Northwest Steelheaders is a local group of sportsmen who share one passion, fishing. We are sport anglers dedicated to restoring and enhancing Salmon, Trout, and Steelhead populations and their habitats for present and future generations.  Our membership enjoys sharing that passion with others, learning from others about our sport, and giving back to our local community so that future generations may enjoy this wonderful sport of fishing.  We meet regularly to share and learn more about that common interest.  For the past 26+ years, our chapter has been committed to the raising of winter steelhead at our Letz Creek  Hatchery for release into the Siuslaw River drainage.  We believe giving back to our community so that future generations may enjoy this sport is a necessity.  Yearly, our club participates in worthwhile events, such as Kids Fishing Clinic at Carmen, Cooking Breakfast for the Mckenzie Guides Candlelighters fishing trip, and educational partnership with our local schools.    If any, or all of these sound like something you would like to become involved with, please join us for our next monthly meeting.
