Rogue Fall Chinook Plan To be Considered Friday
The adoption of a conservation plan for Rogue fall Chinook will be on the agenda when the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission meets Friday morning at eight in Salem.
The State’s Native Fish Conversation Policy calls for the agency to prepare a conservation plan for each native fish population. The Commission will be asked to consider a plan for five independent Rogue populations including the Upper, Middle, and Lower Rogue, Applegate, and Illinois Rivers.
The Conservation Plan outlines several management strategies for maintaining current, healthy, population levels with the commission asked to choose from two preferred alternatives.
Public testimony before the Commission will be held Friday morning immediately following the expenditure report.
The meeting is at the ODFW Headquarters Building at 3406 Cherry Avenue Northeast in Salem.
The meeting will be streamed on the ODFW website.
