March 17 UKIAH* 728 Sa State Stregt 462-0750 Townsend Continued from Page 1 hatchery building was built by the city to be an "oxygen building," Townsend said, but the city found it didn't need it. "So, I asked them to lease it to us, and they did, for $1 a year," he explained. And, "so far," the lease has remained," Townsend added. "Anyhow, we appreciate what they're doing." The hatchery produces steelhead fry and men Fish and Game takes them to its growing facility at Warm Springs. Then they are brought back as yearlings to be put into imprint ponds at the facility to be held for 30 days in Russian River water to imprint the scent of the place to which they will return. Then they are released. And just next to the imprint ponds, huge adult steelhead are still coming up after traveling the entire length of the river from the sea, some of which are milked for eggs to be used for the next year's "crop," and some of which are given to Townsend and his friends to drop off at certain points along the Russian River, "so the fishermen can have a chance at 'em." Record numbers have returned this year — over 4,000 adults. "They were going to bring up 75,000 steelhead and dump them, that was going to be the mitigation," Townsend said. "I said, that's only part of it, meeting after meeting. Finally the Corps hired a consultant to see how many went through up here, and I always told 'em, 10,000 would come through. "Well, he turned in the report, and it said at least 7,500 adults. They likely fainted. I said it's time to accept what the consultant told you - raise 200,000, and you're supposed to get back 4,000. This year, we did get that. We never have before since '91, when we got 3,700. This year, we're better. It looks good; it looks like pretty close to what we should have." Townsend is not a large man, and he strikes a subdued presence in his casual garb and slouch hat, but, like the story he was just telling, and as he put it in his own words: "Oh, I'm radical I tell you but," he added, "If you've done it for so durn long, you know what's good for the fish." Sometimes, Townsend feels there are a few too many studies and not enough action. "I like to see action programs," he said. "Let's put some fish in there! You want corn, you got to put seed in the ground. Right here, if you plant 200 steelhead about 10- inch long, only one would survive. You gotta' put big numbers in the creek to get it back. They've a pretty rough life. The minute you turn them loose, there's somethin' after 'em at all times." Fishin' Townsend thinks it's "impressive" to have fisheries "around a community like this," he said. "You can teach fishin'-- fly fishin' for the kids, and trout derbies for the kids ~ it keeps the community alive." Even at the hatchery facility, several classes of local school kids go on a tour every week, and once a year the Rod and Gun Club throws a kid's trout derby at the Long's Drugs parking lot, which is free of charge for children under 16. "If you teach the kids nothing but to sit around and don't do a thing, nothing's done," Townsend said. "And it's going to be a dull community if you do that. We owe it to our kids to teach them a different way of life than in the big city. I'd rather see them out on the river fishin' than on the corner joining gangs and peddlin' dope." So helping the steelhead population survive in the Russian River is a good thing altogether for Townsend. "Before they outlawed trout fishin' in '66, nobody was around, people were out all day fishin'. And thorp were fish all over the place. Now everything's closed, and there's not as much fish."

"You harvest them for recreation, and it's good for revenues, it's good for the soul. Also, you can teach the kids a different way - teach them fly fishin' and tying flies, and also teach good sportsmanship. You don't find us running in, trespassing. We ask permission. But we do know there needs to be more access to this Russian River. It used to be you could fish any place. Now it's closed out." If you learn how to tie your own fly and go out fly fishing, "and a steelhead conies out and gets it," Townsend explained, "why, it makes you feel good. And you use a bar- bless hook, so you don't have to hurt them. Let him live on another day. It's good for you. "If you ever get down and out," Townsend continued, "you know, how you get overloaded with problems and everything's like against you, go down to the river and start fishin.' Pretty soon you'll get interested in it, and feel better. You go home and forget all about it. And you'll sleep better." So Townsend trucks on, because, he says, "everybody owes a bit for living up here - to make it more enjoyable for people. We all have to put in a little time for the natural resources. "You don't want to deplete the natural resources," Townsend declared. "You've got to learn to put something back. The limit is two steelhead, and they have to be hatchery fish. If you take more, then you're depleting the resources. That's the way it should be. Then, if you have spare tune, clean up the river; do some habitat work." The other advice Townsend gives from his vantage point of heading toward 90 — "Keep moving." But Townsend admits, he may "retire one of these days." One thing's certain: The residents of the Ukiah Valley - including the fish ~ have been lucky to have him around. ianature Theatres In America Tues-Wed Only 7:30 Daly: 5:10,7:50 HNB Matinees: Wed 12:30,2:45 The Passion of the Christ My&Hatch Hidalgo The Ukiah Switchboard 468-3500,468-0123 Circulation 468-3533 CtaMiftal 468-3535,468-3536 Legal/Classifled Advertising 468-3529 Bevta NcCouwU • Publisher 468-3500 I.C.
