An organization and dba of Salmon for Oregon, Association Inc. was formed initially in Reedsport to improve fishing opportunity on the South Coast of Oregon. OCA assists anglers, members and non-members alike, in the pursuit of fishing. Many of our members are anglers, who fish our local waters and have the knowledge and skills to catch fish. Fresh water and salt water anglers can benefit from our activities. We meet on the first Thursday of each month at the Marina Activity Center in Winchester Bay, meetings start at 6:30 PM.
We support local STEP hatcheries, particularly when they are in need of help. Many OCA members are also members of coastal STEP hatchery volunteer groups. Our members have assisted in trapping Salmon and Steelhead, harvesting eggs, fin clipping, feeding fry and releasing them in bays and rivers. More fry and smolts released means more adults returning and better fishing.
