ODFW holds open house on 2013 fishing regulations

January 26, 2012

CHARLESTON, Ore. – ODFW staff will outline a new process for anglers proposing new or modified fishing regulations for 2013 at an open house Feb. 7 in Charleston. ODFW staff will be available to explain the changes and answer questions from 6-8 p.m. at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, Dining Hall, 63466 Boat Basin Dr.

According to Mike Gray, ODFW fish biologist in Charleston, the agency solicits public proposals for changes to the fishing regulations every four years. ODFW has modified the procedure to put more emphasis on local biologists screening proposals to see if they meet established criteria.

“We won’t be discussing proposals at this meeting,” explained Gray. “Rather, we’re making sure people understand the criteria for an acceptable proposal and what the local review process will be.”

Gray encourages anyone with a specific proposal to contact the fish district after the meeting to discuss their proposal. Proposals can be submitted up until Feb. 29 for the 2013-2016 regulation period. Anglers will have a chance to consider the staff and public proposals that met the review criteria at a second meeting in May.

Information about the fishing regulation development process – including a list of ODFW staff proposals and guidelines for submitting a proposal – is available on the ODFW website.
