Tribe Mars kicks off this weekend’s Wheeler Winter Festival & Holiday Market, Friday at 5pm!
“There’s always a certain vibe at each Tribe Mars show. An unduplicated positive energy. Each show is a different animal not because improvisation is planned, but because it’s necessary for an artist’s musical growth. A mix between an emotional experience and a need to dance. It’s at live shows, that their records come to life.”
-OPB


These are our friends (some of almost 20 years!) Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, who bring us their innovative take on the indigenous music of Colombia – Cumbia – Friday at 7pm.
“In the deep vein filled tropical jungles of each our hearts lies the frenetic rhythm of Cumbia, music of the Southern American Hemisphere that has roots cast centuries deep and continents wide. Orquestra Pacifico Tropical have in their brief explosive tenure taken the addictive rhythms of Cumbia and accomplished what musicians across continents and generations have done, bringing crowds in the clubs and forests of the Pacific Northwest into a blistering dance frenzy. Live is where you will hear the ecstatic thump, rumble and sheer brilliance of experiencing the racing rhythms of Coastal Colombia side by side with the psychedelic guitar exploration of the the Peruvian rainforest. Always respecting those who came and innovated before them while forging their own unique stamp on the music. Eleven friends brought together in the spirit of capturing and breathing new life into varieties of Cumbia with an arsenal of percussion, woodwinds, horns and guitars.”

Additional Chinook mortality leads to North Coast fall salmon angling closure

Posted by on Dec 13, 2019 in Tillamook County Pioneer | Comments Off on Additional Chinook mortality leads to North Coast fall salmon angling closure

December 11, 2019 – TILLAMOOK, Ore.: Following a recent die-off of fall Chinook salmon in the Wilson River, excessive pre-spawn mortality of fall Chinook in other nearby rivers has prompted fishery managers to close the entire North Coast to all salmon angling, effective Dec. 13 – 31. The closure includes all North Coast basins from the Nestucca River to the Necanicum River. Angling for steelhead is unaffected by this change and remains open under permanent regulations.

Monitoring of North Coast basins, in response to the recent die-off observed in the Wilson River and by reports from the public of similar mortality events in other rivers, revealed substantial deaths of fall Chinook salmon (more than half of the carcasses sampled in the Nestucca, Trask and Kilchis rivers this week) prior to spawning. Additional pre-spawn mortalities have been observed in the Wilson River since last week’s closure as well. The mortality is attributed to the spread of cryptobia, a naturally occurring parasite which only affects certain fish species, and poses no risk to humans.
The closure is necessary to protect remaining fall Chinook adults to allow them to reach spawning grounds, according to Robert Bradley, district fish biologist for ODFW’s North Coast Watershed District. “The observed pre-spawn mortality is on top of a reduced run of fall Chinook this year,” said Bradley. “We need to protect the remaining spawners to help provide for future runs of fall Chinook on the North Coast.”
Angling for all salmon is closed for the remainder of 2019 in the following areas: Necanicum River basin, Nehalem Bay and River (including the NF Nehalem), Tillamook Bay and rivers (Tillamook River, Trask River, Wilson River, Kilchis River and Miami River), and Nestucca Bay and River (including Three Rivers and the Little Nestucca River).
The pre-spawn mortality event appears to be limited to the North Coast. Assessments of other basins further south have not revealed any incidents of this kind. Due to this, no angling regulation changes are being made in other locations.
For more information about North Coast fisheries, including regulation updates, visit ODFW’s online fishing reports at www.myodfw.com.
