Second joint workgroup of Oregon, Washington commissioners meets in Ridgefield, Wash. Feb. 6

Thursday, January 31, 2019

SALEM, Ore.—A joint workgroup of commissioners from the Oregon and Washington fish and wildlife commissions will meet to discuss policies affecting Columbia River salmon fisheries. The workgroup includes three members from each state’s commission.

Three meetings are scheduled for the following dates and locations. They are open to the public but no public testimony will be taken during the meetings.

  • Feb. 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (WDFW) regional office at 5525 S. 11th St. in Ridgefield, Wash.
  • Feb. 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at main office of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife at 4034 Fairview Industrial Dr. S.E. in Salem, Ore.
  • March 14, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at WDFW’s regional office at 5525 S. 11th St. in Ridgefield, Wash.

The workgroup meetings follow a November 2018 joint meeting of the two full Commissions to discuss differences between the current policies of each state. The workgroup is working to find common ground for 2019 fishing seasons.

The workgroup meetings are not decision-making meetings. The workgroups will report back to their full Commissions, who will ultimately consider any changes to their respective policies.
