Let’s talk about fishing: ODFW hosts open house in Bend on Sept. 20
September 7, 2011


SALEM, Ore. –State fishery managers are inviting anglers to share their ideas, comments and concerns at an “Open House” on Sept. 20 in Bend. The open house is being held in conjunction with a meeting of the Inland Sports Fishing Advisory Committee (ISFAC).

The meeting at the Phoenix Inn Suites, 300 NW Franklin Ave in Bend, goes from 6 to 9 p.m. The agenda will focus on lake management in the High Desert Region and include an overview on the upcoming project to remove illegally introduced bullhead catfish from South Twin Lake. Public comments on the South Twin project will be accepted at the meeting.

The remainder of the agenda will be dedicated to hearing from anglers and addressing questions and concerns from attendees.

“We’re looking forward to meeting anglers and listening to what’s on their mind,” said Rhine Messmer, ODFW Recreational Fisheries Program Manager. “The open house is a good way for us to get input on a variety of fish management issues so that we can make better informed decisions.”

ISFAC was created by ODFW to help provide input and ideas on implementation of the department’s 25-year Angling Enhancement Plan (pdf). The plan has two primary goals of providing diverse, stable, and productive angling opportunities, and recruiting and retaining anglers.

The 26 members of the Advisory Committee represent a variety of fishing interests from throughout the state.

Twice a year ISFAC meetings are open to the public as a forum for interested anglers to bring their fishery management issues, thoughts and ideas to ODFW fishery managers and administrators.
