The Oregon Coastal Conservation Association, much more than a fishing club, is an advocacy group for fishermen. There is tremendous power in the membership of thousands of salt and freshwater anglers that spans seventeen coastal states. CCA’s unmatched breadth and depth of volunteer involvement has made it the largest group of its kind. Its grassroots network and unique combination of membership, fundraising and advocacy have enacted positive change on all levels of coastal marine conservation and management.
Currently, there are ten chapters of the Coastal Conservation Association in Oregon, and the South Coast Chapter located in Winchester Bay makes it eleven. Chris Cone, Executive Director of the Oregon Coastal Conservation Association, states that the membership in Oregon alone is at two thousand and growing.
Many of us in Reedsport, Winchester Bay, Gardiner, Elkton and surrounding towns are avid anglers and would like to an effective voice in dealing with ODF&W and State Government. Join CCA Oregon and add your voice to those taking a stand for sustainable recreational fisheries. The new South Coast CCA Chapter will meet on May 5th at 6:30 PM at the Marina Activity Center, 263 Marina Way, Winchester Bay. Chips and salsa will be provided!
