ROSEBURG, Ore. – On June 1, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and an advisory committee meet in Brookings to continue drafting a Southern Oregon fall chinook conservation plan. They meet 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Chetco Public Library, 405 Alder Street. Public comments are accepted for 10 minutes at the end of the agenda.
The committee will resume work on a conservation status statement for Rogue River Basin fall chinook populations and plan to begin drafting desired and conservation status statements for Chetco and Winchuck fall chinook.
The conservation plan covers populations of native fall chinook salmon in Oregon streams between Euchre Creek and the California border and the Rogue River Basin. Guided by ODFW’s Native Fish Conservation Policy, the plan will identify desired and conservation status and describe management strategies to reach these goals.
A June 15 meeting is also planned for Brookings with agenda information available in early June.
