The Beaver State Podcast Episode 115: The Fish Chief

October 28, 2022

Mike Harrington is the newest Fish Chief, or Fish Division Administrator. He's the person who heads up ODFW's Fish side of the house, as opposed to the wildlife side of the house. His path to becoming Fish Chief has taken him all over the country and the state of Oregon, giving him a diverse background, but always keeping him grounded in his love of fish, fishing and passing that on to his kids. We talk to Harrington about how he ended up in a place he never imagined himself and what he'd like to accomplish for Oregon's many fish species.
