Columbia River Salmon and Steelhead Panel

WDFW is accepting nominations for a Columbia Basin Advisory Board, responsible for improving sport fishing opportunities in the Columbia System. Nominations for the new board are due no later than July 15th to Heather Bartlett, Salmon and Steelhead Division Manager, at 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA, 98501-1091. More information is available by contacting Heather, at (360) 902-2662. Nominees must include:

  • The name of the advisory group the nominee is applying for.
  • The nominee's name, physical and email address and telephone number.
  • The nominee's affiliations.
  • The name, address and telephone number of any organization submitting a nomination.
  • Experience, including the amount and type of experience, and any species or areas of interest, and references.

Given the cultural and biological importance of the Columbia Basin for sport fisheries in our area it would be a shame for the conservation community to miss the opportunity to throw our name in the hat. Some well reasoned, informed voice dedicated to the conservation and recovery of wild fish in our region would be highly advantageous. More information in a news release at WDFWs website.
