Who We Are
Bill McMillan, Archivist
Writer, Conservationist, Citizen scientist. Bill helped found the Wild Fish Conservancy in 1989 and served as its Board Chair for ten years. Prior to that he expplored rivers throughout Oregon and Washington, pioneering snorkling investigations where his observations and findings supported his exhaustive historical research efforts into the region's salmon and steelhead legacy. Bill's passionate angling and fly tying expertise was captured in the seminal 1988 book "Dry Line Fishing for Steelhead and Other Subjects" and again in "May the Rivers Never Sleep", written with his son John McMillan in 2012.
