As a point of information, you may be interested in knowing about the foregoing Oregon State Warmwater Fish Records. In the early 1960s, at the request of the then Oregon Game Commission, now the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), the Oregon Bass and Panfish Club, Inc. (OBPC), became the official keeper of state records for all warmwater fish. As we had our finger on the pulse of what was being caught statewide and because ODFW did not have the manpower to maintain the records, it was decided that the only club (OBPC) registered in Oregon at that time could better handle the task. Thanks in large part to the diligence and dedicated efforts of our first contest chairman, Roy Hughes (deceased), and the succeeding contest chairmen, we are recognized as the official source for this information. All district offices of ODFW and all other bass clubs in the state know to contact us with new applications/submissions or inquiries. This information is also supplied to the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and the International Game Fish Association for their official world and USA state record publications.
