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 another 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" issues executed by our volunteers and professional staff has shown to work here, as it has for 40 years in 18 other coastal states.  The objective of CCA is to conserve, promote and enhance the present and future availability of these marine resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the public.  CCA Oregon draws its strength from the grassroots support of thousands of state recreational anglers who make up it's membership.

Together we work at the state and national levels to represent the interests of the sports fisherman.  Local chapters and their members identify issues affecting fisheries in their areas.  CCA Oregon works to develop and maintain ample sports fishing opportunities by ensuring that our fisheries are abundant and robust.

We are politically engaged and driving vital changes in policies that will positively affect our fisheries for years to come.  By being involved in policy making, working with policy makers, and changing laws in the legislature that are vital to sustainable fisheries, CCA Oregon is fighting for your rights.   The CCA model gets results.  We have more CCA members serving on advisory committees and rulemaking boards around the state than any other group.  Our members are shaping fishery policy every day.  You can help our fisheries by joining CCA and getting engaged with your local chapter.

CCA Oregon's noteworthy accomplishments:

  • Leading organization that is driving the ban of destructive gillnetting on the mainstem lower Columbia River.
