Local angler Bill Mumpower to speak

July 19, 2022 — Florence STEP will host its monthly general meeting on Aug. 3 at 6 p.m.

Local fisherman Bill Mumpower will talk about surf fishing opportunities on area beaches.

“We welcome anyone who is interested in our local fishing and our group's volunteer opportunities,” says Terry Barrett, Florence STEP member.

STEP is a volunteer program within the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) that works to restore and enhance Oregon's native salmon and trout populations. Since 1981, STEP volunteers have monitored fish populations, restored stream habitat, provided youth and adult educational opportunities, and produced salmon, steelhead and trout for Oregon fisheries. Volunteers have donated money, materials, equipment, and countless hours of time and labor.

The meeting will take place at the Florence Elks Club, 1686 12th Street.
