The quiet cast of a fly line cures writer’s block for outdoor journalist Kris Millgate. Many of her multi-media production ideas come from the time she spends in her Idaho base camp. Millgate investigates outdoor and environmental issues for TV and web with cross publication in newspapers and magazines.

Millgate recognized the meshing of the mediums in 2006 and made the bold move to multi-media as a freelancer with her production company Tight Line Media.

Millgate is a member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America . She is also a life member of Trout Unlimited and a commissioner for Idaho Falls Parks and Recreation.

Millgate won 1st place for Outdoor Ethics with OWAA in 2009 and President’s Choice in 2011 and 2012. The Idaho Press Club honored her with Best Documentary in 2010 and 2013 and Idaho Fish and Game honored her with Outstanding Service for Wildlife Conservation in 2013.

Her film, Restoring Hope, about watershed restoration in Idaho is on tour with the Wild and Scenic Film Festival this year.

Her 18 years of experience and several cross-country moves prove she’ll go anywhere for a good story.
