ADOPT TEMPORARY RULES

Curt Melcher, Director

  1. 635-016-0090
    Lift Temporary Low Flow Angling Closure for the Sixes River
    Adopted 10/26/202: EFFECTIVE DATE: 10/27/2021 THROUGH 12/31/2021
    The Sixes River was previously closed to angling under emergency rule because of low flows. The rule modification is needed because river flows have increased to a point where the temporary closure is no longer needed to protect Chinook that are vulnerable while staging in tidal waters. These actions are consistent with provisions of ODFW's Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan (CMP) and Rogue Fall Chinook Salmon Plan.         
 
EXHIBIT A: DETERMINING THE STATE AGENCIES THAT OWN OR MANAGE LAND THAT CAN PLAY A ROLE IN CONSERVATION OF MURRELETS

The Commission will be asked to approve a list of state agencies that own, manage or have recorded easements for lands which they determine can play a role in Marbled Murrelet conservation.

Staff: Martin Nugent, Threatened, Endangered, and Sensitive Species Coordinator
Public Testimony: 48-hour Advance Registration Required
Approval
