recreational fisheries enhancement group

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking members of the sport fishing community to serve on a committee that oversees a program designed to enhance recreational fishing in Puget Sound and Lake Washington.

Seven volunteer positions are currently open on the oversight committee. Members serve two-year terms. The next term begins this September and expires in 2010.

The committee, which represents the sport fishing community, meets quarterly to review projects and provide funding guidance on activities related to the Puget Sound salmon and marine fish enhancement program.

Committee members do not receive direct compensation for their work, but travel reimbursement is available.

Interested individuals should submit a letter of interest and a resume by Aug. 18 to Greg Bargmann at or Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Attn: Greg Bargmann, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia WA, 98501-1091

The next quarterly meeting is scheduled for Sept. 3, 2008.
