WDFW seeks nominations for the
Inland Fish Policy Advisory Group

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking nominations through Dec. 31 for membership on the Inland Fish Policy Advisory Group.

Up to 15 qualified individuals will be chosen to serve on the advisory group for 2015 and 2016. Those selected will provide guidance to WDFW on statewide issues related to management of inland fish species, such as trout, bass, panfish and kokanee. They also serve as an important communication link between WDFW and its constituents.

Advisors should have a broad interest in inland fish management and the ability to communicate effectively with large segments of the public.

The advisory group meets approximately three times per year, and advisors are asked periodically to comment on written materials throughout the year. Advisors serve for a term of two years and can be reappointed. Appointments become effective Feb. 1, 2015. Current members are encouraged to reapply if they so desire.

Advisors do not receive direct compensation for their work.

Any group or individual can submit a nomination, and self-nominations are also accepted. Nominees do not need to be affiliated with an organized group. Nominations must include the following information:

  • The nominee's name, address and telephone number.
  • The nominee's constituent group affiliations, if any. If representing a specific constituent group, the nominee’s application must have a letter from that group stating its nomination of that person.
  • The name, address and telephone number of any organization submitting a nomination.
  • Relevant experience, including any species or areas of interest, as well as references. 

Nominations must be received by Dec. 31. Nominations should be submitted to Bruce Bolding, WDFW Fish Management Division, by mail: 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA, 98501; or email: More information is available by contacting Bruce Bolding at (360) 902-8417.
