SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Inland Sport Fishing Advisory Committee will meet on Monday, Jan. 23 at the ODFW Headquarters at 3406 Cherry Ave NE in Salem.
The meeting will be from 6 to 9 p.m. and the agenda will include a discussion of a potential Quality Waters Program that would identify and enhance unique fishing opportunities in Oregon. The 2011 Oregon Legislature directed ODFW to study how such a program could be implemented and report back the Legislature this fall.
The Committee also will assess its first two years and develop a schedule and key discussion points for the remaining 2012 committee meetings. The public will be invited to participate in these discussions.
The Inland Sport Fishing Advisory Committee was created by ODFW to help provide input and ideas on implementation of the department’s 25-year Angling Enhancement Plan. The plan has two primary goals of providing diverse, stable, and productive angling opportunities, and recruiting and retaining anglers.
The 26 members of the Advisory Committee represent a variety of fishing interests from throughout the state.
