Help support ODFW district bio Jeff Ziller’s proposal to limit bait fishing from Hendricks Bridge to Belinger landing by writing a letter of support. We need to protect wild fish throughout the McKenzie and bait fishing increases mortality. Not only does this section offer a few more miles of safety for our native stocks it’s also the section currently under study to create a population baseline for future management.
Write you letters to:
Rhine T. Messmer
Recreational Fisheries Program Manager
Fish Division, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife
3406 Cherry Avenue NE
Salem, OR 97303
Letters need to be to the ODFW Salem office before the end of June. With a stack of letters and big attendance at the August 3rd meeting we have a great shot at helping sustain and improve a critical population of wild trout on the McKenzie River.
