Within the early 20th century, the North Umpqua River drew anglers to Douglas County, Ore. They fished for Chinook and Coho salmon, in addition to sea-run cutthroat trout. Summer time fishing camps have been established, resulting in a storied angling historical past.
One piece of North Umpqua lore concerned an Irish immigrant and World Struggle I veteran, Victor “Vic” O’Byrne [oh-BERN], born in 1890.
