Salmon and Trout Advisory Committee seeks North Coast representative

August 15, 2012

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking qualified candidates to represent the North Coast district on the Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program (STEP) Advisory Committee.

Oregonians that are involved with local fishing or STEP groups, have previous experience working with volunteers and/or in community service, or are involved in natural resource or angling education are encouraged to apply. Candidates must be able to travel at least four times per year. The ideal candidate will be a resident of the area extending from Cannon Beach north to Warrenton, and up the Columbia River to Westport including the communities of Cannon Beach, Seaside, Warrenton, Astoria and Vernonia.

The major stream basins in this area include the Klaskanine, Youngs, Lewis and Clark, Necanicum, and Nehalem rivers.

The successful candidate will serve a four-year term, with the possibility of re-appointment for a total term of eight years.

STEP was created by the Oregon Legislature in 1981 to provide a way for volunteers to participate in the restoration of native stocks of salmon, steelhead and trout.

The committee is comprised of 13 members representing all regions of Oregon.
Members are appointed by the Governor and meet quarterly in various communities throughout the state to conduct STEP business and advise ODFW and the Fish and Wildlife Commission on issues regarding STEP. Committee members are volunteers; however, business-related expenses are reimbursed.

This recruitment will remain open until filled, though candidates are encouraged to apply by Sept. 7, 2012.

For more information about STEP and directions to application materials, go to or contact Kevin Herkamp, ODFW Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program Coordinator, at (503)947-6232 or kevin.herkamp@state.or.usApplication materials.
