ODFW Salmon and Trout Advisory Committee to meet in Tillamook on Sept. 20

August 30, 2013

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program Advisory Committee will meet in Tillamook on Friday, Sept. 20.

The committee will meet from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Commission Room at the ODFW North Coast Watershed District Office, 4907 Third Street in Tillamook. The agenda is available at and includes reports on STEP activities and projects, program updates and review of mini-grant applications. 

The Committee will also review proposals to renew the Whiskey Creek and Rhoades Pond STEP propagation programs.  Any STEP project that rears fish for release (including egg incubation) must be approved by ODFW. Part of the approval process includes public input and review by the Advisory Committee. The Whiskey Creek and Rhoades Pond proposals can be viewed on the STEP website and written comments must be submitted by Sept. 16, 2013 and can be sent to

The meeting is open to the public, as is a tour of Tillamook-area STEP projects Friday afternoon. Members of the public must provide their own transportation and can call ODFW at (503) 947-6211 for driving directions.

The Oregon Legislature created Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program in 1981 to provide a way for volunteers to participate in the restoration of native stocks of salmon, steelhead and trout. The STEP Advisory Committee makes recommendations to ODFW and the Fish and Wildlife Commission on issues regarding its programs. The committee’s 13 members are appointed by the Governor and represent all areas of Oregon.

Reasonable accommodations will be provided as needed for individuals requesting assistive hearing devices, sign language interpreters or large-print materials. Individuals needing these types of accommodations may call the Information and Education Division at (800) 720-6339 or (503) 947-6002 at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.
