Malheur Lakes Redband Trout Conservation Plan

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) is developing a conservation plan for redband trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss spp) that is consistent with guidance provided in Oregon’s Native Fish Conservation Policy. The Malheur Lakes Redband Trout Conservation Plan is intended to provide information and management guidance for redband trout within the Malheur Lakes basin. The current health of nine existing redband trout populations in this species management unit (SMU) is described, and management strategies and actions are proposed that are intended to maintain and improve their status.

Species/Units covered

  • Great Basin redband trout (Malheur Lakes SMU)
