4CFF monthly meetings are now in a hybrid format.
Conservation is highly valued by the 4CFF. We understand and appreciate the value of protecting our fisheries and are dedicated to the protection and reservation of those fisheries when and if they are threatened. We financial support specific environmental organizations who protect our fisheries, actively participate in conservation efforts through research and governmental lawmaking. Actively participating in conservation projects and educational activities is for the betterment and preservation of angling waters, surrounding land, and aquatic resources.
This project is located on a publicly owned WDFW property in Concrete WA and (thanks to the hard work donated by the 4th Corner Fly Fishers) visitors to Cedar Grove can currently enjoy a newly built foot trail that winds through the forest and access the shore of the Skagit River. In the near future this trail will be made into a loop enhanced by several benches and an interpretive sign. The project is expect to complete by summer 2022 when SFEG will assist the County with construction of the 120ft pedestrian bridge.
