Volunteers being sought
NEWPORT — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife needs volunteer anglers this spring and fall to help catch and release ocean bottom fish.
Volunteers will participate in an eight-hour ocean outing leaving from Port Orford, Newport, Depoe Bay or Garibaldi. ODFW will provide the rods, reels and terminal tackle and, since volunteers are participating in scientific research, no fishing license is required.
