Wild Fish on the McKenzie Need Your Help


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.

    I am writing tomorrow. I believe you have an incorrect zip code for ODFW. 97401 is downtown EUG. The zip I have from the handout at the May 21 meeting at LCC is 97303. Please followup.

    I think the above is the wrong zip code. The materials ODFW had at LCC said the above address, but zip code of 97303.
