Saltwater fishing focus of ODFW event in Gold Beach

June 29, 2010


NEWPORT, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife will host an education event especially for saltwater anglers in July 10 in Gold Beach.

“ODFW recognizes the importance of saltwater angler education and information for the public,” said Gway Kirchner, assistant manager for the Marine Resources Program.

One lucky participant will win a free four-hour bottom fishing trip donated by Five Star Charters. The trip is for one person and must be used by end of August.  To enter, you must complete the fish identification part of the open house. 

The event is near the public boat ramp from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. They are geared toward beginning and advanced saltwater anglers alike with something for everyone. ODFW staff will be on hand to answer questions; share fishing tips and secrets; show how to ID fish, and swap fish stories. They will also have examples of fish and shellfish, demonstrations on how to return bycatch to depth, as well as handy fish guides. There will also be information about ODFW’s latest collaborative research with local anglers aimed at increasing fishing opportunity.

The displays include: Successful Fishing: how to target your catch and avoid the fish you don’t want to catch; Understanding Fisheries Management: who’s in charge and why are you doing it that way; Research with Angler Groups; and Crab and Shellfish Information.

This open house is part of ODFW’s mission to provide helpful information and answer questions anglers might have.
