ROSEBURG, Ore. – A meeting of the southern Oregon fall chinook conservation plan public advisory committee and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is scheduled for 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 9 at the Chetco Community Public Library, 405 Alder Street, Brookings. The meeting is open to the public with comments accepted at the end of the agenda.

The advisory committee represents conservation and angling groups, commercial fishers, fishing guides and local government. The committee will provide input to ODFW following guidelines in the Native Fish Conservation Policy.

The plan will cover populations of fall chinook salmon in streams between Euchre Creek and the California border and the Rogue River. The plan will identify desired and conservation status and describe management strategies developed to reach these goals.

At the Feb. 9 meeting, the committee will consider what types of measurable elements could be included in a desired status statement and possible methods of estimating numbers of spawning fall chinook.

Persons needing accessibility assistance should contact Meghan Collins at 541/440-3353.
