My name is David Kesey and I have been fishing the Owyhee River for about ten years. As anyone knows, who has been fishing the river, we are overdue for some updated regs. on the river.
My goal is to have people post a comment here on my blog including their name, address and phone number. When the final proposal is submitted to ODFW (Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife), I will print out your comments from here and include them as letters of support for the proposal.
The following, in substance, is the proposal that will be submitted to ODFW by late Feb. 2012:
OCT. 15 TO JAN. 1 CLOSURE OF THE ENTIRE RIVER FROM THE OWYHEE LAKE DAM TO THE SNAKE RIVER, TO PROTECT SPAWNING FISH.
NO BAIT, FLIES AND LURES ONLY, SINGLE BARBLESS HOOK.
If you support these changes please comment and put your name, address and phone number indicating that you support the changes.
Email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your support!
