According to legend and lore, it’s the fish that may have made America possible. As the tale goes, Gen. George Washington’s ragtag Continental Army was on the brink of starvation at its encampment during the winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, during the Revolutionary War. But a warm-weather snap caused an epic spawning run of American shad on the nearby Schuylkill River, and the dried and salted fish sustained the army through the encampment.
SILVERTON – Sometimes fishing can become an exercise in bird-watching. Right after the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife hatchery truck makes a delivery of trout to Silver Creek Reservoir, the ospreys hang out in the area around the dam, near the stocking site at the boat ramp, said Tom Finkle.
The bite has started to improve for spring chinook on Oregon’s coastal rivers, while heavy stocking of rainbow trout continues in lakes near Salem. Those are two of the main highlights from this week’s recreation report from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The Nestucca is in good shape and spring Chinook fishing has been slow to fair depending on the day. There’s more water than usual for this time of year, so all of the drifts are available.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
