WDFW Seeks Nominations For North Coast Steelhead Sport Fishing Advisory Group
OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking nominations through May 22 for membership on its new North Coast Steelhead Advisory Group. Up to 12 individuals will be chosen to serve on the ad hoc advisory group, which will meet several times this year with meetings beginning as early as June. Terms will end June 30, 2017. Advisory group members will evaluate the existing steelhead regulations and hatchery production for North Olympic Peninsula’s rivers and streams. They will also consider proposed rules for 2016-17 and will be expected to craft alternatives that promote sustainable fisheries and meet WDFW’s conservation goals, said Steve Thiesfeld, regional fish program manager for WDFW.
