    Patrick Webb|Jun 6, 2024

    Halle Miller put it into words better than anyone. "It's been a great season!" she exclaimed.

  • Fields Fir sale should be protected as Legacy Forest

    Robert Michael Pyle|May 30, 2024

    I thank the editors of the Chinook Observer and the Wahkiakum County Eagle for their extensive reporting on the future of the Fields Fir proposed timber sale on Naselle’s watershed land. Riley Yusan did a fine job of soliciting and including views from many of the people involved both within and without the logging community. While the respected voices quoted in the piece covered much of the fact, opinion, and guesswork about this proposed project, there is one important aspect of this story that was not fully represented. That is the q...

  • Fields Fir sale: Naselle ponders logging its watershed

    Riley Yusan|May 23, 2024
    1

    NASELLE — At least twice, plastic flagging tipped locals off to the Fields Fir timber sale — a 174-acre harvest the DNR is proposing in the Lane and O’Conner Creek watersheds, which supply Naselle’s drinking water. It was a hunter both times. One saw ribbons left over from the timber cruise, and told his friend and longtime Naselle resident Rex Ziak about it. The other was Gavin Maxwell, also a longtime Naselle resident, who saw sale tags in late 2022. Not that there was anything to hide. For the DNR, this was business as usual, and a slow-mo...

  • WDFW exploring strict fishery on Naselle

    Jeff Clemens for the Chinook Observer|Apr 10, 2024

    The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife held a North of Falcon meeting on March 28 to discuss salmon fishing rules for the 2024-25 season in Willapa Bay. Escapement estimates continue to be below goals, a factor certain to influence this year’s fishing seasons. The significant development from the meeting and presentation is an extra effort to conserve fish in the Naselle River. One option being explored is requiring any fish snagged between Aug. 1 and Oct. 15 to count toward an angler’s daily limit. “The intent of this idea is re...

  • Lots of stuff to do this spring

    M.D. Johnson|Mar 28, 2024

    I reckon at this point it’s officially Spring. Or least it would appear so based on the lilacs, Italian plums, peaches, apricots, daffodils, and on and on in bloom here at the house. The jetty sparrows – y’all know them simply as song sparrows – have started nesting, the ‘little’ geese (the Cackling geese, Aleutians, and Lesser Canadas) have, with a handful of exceptions, gone home to The Great White North, and I expect to see yellow balls of fluff, i.e. Canada goose goslings, on local farm pond...

  • Chinook tribe to receive major funds

    Before the colonization of what is now the United States, the Clatsop lived on the south shore of the Columbia River. At the river’s mouth, where the Columbia rushes into the Pacific Ocean, were the Lower Chinook on the north shore and the Willapa Chinook on the bay north of the river. The Lower Chinook and Clatsop had close familial and kinship ties to the Wahkiakum and the Cathlamet, who lived just a canoe ride to the east. Today, the Chinook Indian Nation encompasses all five nations that h...
