This Friday, August 3rd, the ODFW Commission will meet in Salem to hear both public comment and the staff presentation regarding the proposed rule to limit the use of bait in the study section on the Mckenzie River between Hendricks Bridge and Bellinger boat landing.
While the final decision will be made in Hermiston next month THIS IS THE MEETING TO ATTEND to show ODFW your support of wild trout on the Mckenzie. Wild trout advocates learned a valuable lesson last year when the commission denied staff’s proposal to limit bait based primarily on the testimony of those in attendance. For this reason, local wild trout advocates need to be out in force to show support and testify for the Mckenzie’s wild rainbow trout.
Where: ODFW Headquarters, 3406 Cherry Ave NE. , Salem Oregon
When: 9am, Friday, August 3rd
A number of us will be driving. For information on carpooling or additional information about the meeting please contact Monica Mullen at (541) 731-7440.
Hope to see you there!
