SALEM, Ore.— The public will have the opportunity beginning today to provide input on the development of the 2009 Sport Fishing Regulations.
The development process, which happens every four years, provides ODFW, Oregon State Police fish and wildlife division, and the public to propose new or modified sport fishing regulations. The previous development process happened in 2004 and covered the 2005 through 2008 angling regulations. This year’s process will affect the 2009 through 2012 sport fishing regulations.
The 2009 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulation Development packets are available to the public at local ODFW offices, the headquarters office in Salem, or online at: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/fishing/index.asp .
The packets contain background information on angling regulation development, instructions on how to submit comments and proposals, and the ODFW and OSP proposals being considered.
For additional information contact Rhine Messmer, Recreational Fisheries Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or any of your local ODFW Offices.
