Our next meeting will be on Tuesday May 15th. The speaker for this month will be Mr. Bruce Polley of the Coastal Conservation Association Salem Chapter. Bruce is a
State Vice President for CCA and chairs the government relations committee. He has been involved in fish advocacy about 15 years. The first 5 as an individual, the last ten as a CCA member and officer. Bruce actively fishes for salmon and some steelhead. He is a Doryman with a house in Pacific City where he fishes all the local ocean fisheries plus coastal rivers as far south as the Coquille. Bruce will speak about his experience in fish politics in Oregon and the state of the Columbia River Reforms. Let’s have a big turnout to hear him speak.

Welcome to the Salem, Oregon Chapter of the Association of Northwest Steelheaders!
The Salem Chapter of the Northwest Steelheaders are a group of dedicated anglers who strongly believe that the resource and the environment in which we enjoy our resource needs to be taken care of in order for future generations to be able to enjoy it as we have. As a Chapter we have undertaken numerous projects to address environmental issues such as riverbank pollution, erosion, and invasive species removal. We have adopted two parks along our home river the North Santiam – Minto Park and North Santiam State Park – and perform cleanup, trail maintenance, and improvements on those parks to continue to ensure access for the fishing public. Members of our Chapter also work hand in hand with ODFW in order to restore and reinvigorate our local fisheries.
In addition, Salem Chapter Members represent some of the most knowledgeable individuals in the area on the North Santiam and Nestucca rivers systems, with many our members having decades of experience fishing both of these rivers. The passing on of knowledge from one generation to the next is an important facet of our Chapter.
Come check us out. We’d love to meet you.
