Striper Management in Oregon,
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is inviting
selected members of the public to form a striped bass
working group to help ODFW managers develop
management options and recommendations for the Fish and
Wildlife Commission at their August 2001 meeting.
"In Oregon, striped bass management is a contentious issue," said Umpqua Watershed Manager Steve Denney. "Striped bass provide a recreational fishery for many anglers, while concerns exist over potential impacts of striped bass
preying on salmon and steelhead populations."
During the angling regulation process at their September meeting, the Commission directed ODFW staff to form a working group to develop regulation recommendations for striped bass in the Umpqua, Coquille, Coos, and Siuslaw River basins. Denney is leading this effort and has sent letters of invitation to local interested citizens inviting them to join the working group. Paul Heikkila, an Oregon State University Extension Agent, will moderate the meetings. Denney expects to hold several meetings to discuss striped bass biology, Endangered Species Act requirements and striped bass management.
