The meeting is open to the public, as is a field trip to selected sites on the Smith River on Saturday, Aug. 16 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. To join the tour meet at the Best Western Salbasgeon Inn on Highway 101 at 8:30 a.m. Members of the public must provide their own transportation.

The Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program was created by the Oregon State Legislature in 1989, and is funded by a surcharge on sport and commercial fishing licenses and commercial poundage fees. The program’s seven-member citizen board reviews fish restoration and enhancement project proposals and makes funding recommendations to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission.
