Welcome to CCA Oregon | Resource-First, Science-Based Advocates

CCA Oregon is an advocacy group for salmon, steelhead and other Northwest marine fish species.  Our Job is to give a voice to this precious resource that cannot defend itself against harm.  Since 2007 CCA Oregon has developed into the most effective and far reaching fish advocacy organization in our state's history.

We are not just a fishing club.

We employ professional staff (lobbyist, executive director, regional fisheries director) that carry out our work while we are at our jobs.  The model of "Member Driven" comes from 40 years experience in 18 coastal states.  The heart of our "fish politics" work is the Government Relations Committee (GRC).  The GRC is a small group of Oregon CCA Members who are extremely knowlegeable in the history of fish politics in the Pacific Northwest, the here and now, what is on the near and on the far horizon.  They know and understand the people in the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, the Oregon Legislature, the Tribes, and many Federal agencies who influence our PNW fisheries.  The GRC works and collaborates with many "fishing Clubs" who have like interests.

The GRC has the pulse of what most CCA members want, and the GRC analyzes and makes recommendations to the Oregon CCA Board of Directors.

Help us Protect Recreational Chinook Fisheries in Oregon’s Ocean this Summer

The Pacific Fisheries Management Council (PFMC) is considering two alternatives for ocean salmon fisheries that would close the recreational fishery along most of the Oregon coast to the retention of Chinook during part or all of August. If adopted, the closures will not benefit conservation (in this case Klamath River fall Chinook), but rather increase the share of these fish caught in commercial salmon fisheries. 

CCA Oregon Advocacy Updates

CCA continues its efforts in support of fisheries, salmon recovery, and hatcheries in Oregon.  We’re leading the fight to defend the Columbia River gillnet reforms following a September vote by the WDFW Commission to return non-selective gillnets to the mainstem Columbia River while cutting some mark-selective recreational fisheries by over 25%.
