Habitat Conservation in the Rogue

Conserving fish habitat is important to maintaining healthy native fish populations, and we can all help by limiting the amount of water we use in summer months. People who own land along streams and rivers can help maintain healthy riparian areas by not removing streamside vegetation.

Good fish habitat is determined by water quality and quantity. Water quantity can be reduced by agricultural or municipal water withdrawals. Water quality is often influence by temperature and pollutants. ODFW works to improve fish habitat, often by designing projects that improve physical stream habitat, like adding large wood. There are also some incentives for private land owners who want to protect riparian areas.
