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.

CCA Oregon Continues to Lead on Sea Lion Legislation

For years, CCA Oregon has highlighted the growing threat unnatural sea lion predation poses to Columbia River basin wild salmon and steelhead populations.  We've worked in Salem to get increased funding for ODFW to document and undertake measures to disrupt the alaming predation levels around Willamette Falls.  Understanding that these limited measures would be inadequate to reverse the problem, we've continually supported Congressional legislation to give ODFW, WDFW, and the Columbia River tribes new streamlined authorities to remove problem sea lions under the Marine Mammal Protection Act
