Warm Water Fish - "Going Native" in Oregon @ Salem City Library - Anderson Rooms

Warmwater fish – species such as bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish – are not native to the Northwest, but they’re firmly established throughout the region and in many waters are thriving. Learn their history in Oregon and how altered habitats and other changes to the environment have provided suitable and often ideal conditions for them. This presentation by Gary Galovich of Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will look at the challenges they present in a state whose rich fishing heritage has been built on the iconic salmon, but also the opportunities they provide. The program is open to the public with admission of $5 at the door with students free. For more information contact Jon Yoder at joyoder@wildblue.net.
