ROSEBURG, Ore. – A committee formed to advise ODFW in development of a conservation plan for naturally produced fall chinook salmon in southern Oregon is holding two meetings in March.

Meetings are Mar. 2 and Mar. 16 and both run from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Chetco Community Public Library, 405 Alder Street, Brookings. The proceedings are open to the public and comments will be accepted for 10 minutes at the end of the meeting.

The conservation plan covers populations of native fall chinook salmon that inhabit Oregon streams in the area between Euchre Creek and the California border and the Rogue River Basin. Using guidelines established in ODFW’s Native Fish Conservation Policy, the plan will identify desired and conservation status and will describe management strategies to reach these goals.

Agenda items for the Mar. 2 meeting are primarily focused on three topics: review of preliminary estimates of spawning escapement in south coast basins; potential classification of populations; and methods used to estimate population productivity. The Mar. 16 agenda is not yet available.

The public advisory committee represents conservation and angling groups, commercial fishers, fishing guides and local government. They expect to meet monthly through June, providing input to ODFW over the course of plan development.

Persons needing accessibility assistance should contact Todd Confer at 541-247-7605.
