The North Umpqua is the stuff of legends – from its majestic waters, to its mighty wild fish, to its determined defenders who have fought tooth and nail for decades to protect this steelhead mecca. Chief among these Umpqua protectors is renowned conservationist Frank Moore, an American war hero and conservation icon who has been awarded the Wild Steelhead Coalition’s two highest honors for his work over more than half a century to conserve wild steelhead and their waters.

Recently, legislation was introduced in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives to create a steelhead sanctuary on the North Umpqua bearing Frank’s name. The proposed Frank Moore Wild Steelhead Management Area would protect a 104,000-acre region of Forest Service land north of the North Umpqua River that is one of the most remarkable salmonid sanctuaries in the world.

To raise awareness about this legislation, Backcountry Hunters and Anglers released a short film that shines a light on the jewels of the North Umpqua and discusses the critical importance of creating the Frank Moore Steelhead Sanctuary. Take a few minutes to watch this great film and be sure to sign up and show your support.
