For FishingMagician.com, I'm Eric Granstrom. Want to have a real say in what happens with fisheries in the Columbia River? Here's your chance. Fishery managers in Washington and Oregon are seeking candidates to fill positions on advisory committees that provide guidance on sport and commercial fishing issues on the Columbia and Snake rivers. The two states' fish and wildlife departments will accept nominations for three-year terms to their joint advisory groups for Columbia River sport and commercial fisheries through Thursday, Nov. 30. The term is for three years from 2018 through 2020. The two groups meet two to four times per year to develop recommendations for salmon, steelhead, sturgeon and smelt fisheries. Members are expected to provide comments on issues addressed by the North of Falcon season-setting process for salmon fisheries, Columbia River Compact commercial fishing hearings, and joint state hearings on sportfishing regulations. Up to 20 candidates will be chosen for each advisory group, which together represent all aspects of the Northwest fishing industry. Go to the Department's website for more information at wdfw.wa.gov. I was about to mention it looks like Kokanee fishing is heating up in Chelan, but I'll let Dave tell you tomorrow. Until next time, Good Fishing!
