The process of making a management plan for multiple South Coast fish

Coho Salmon

In fresh water and salt, life is hard enough on migratory fish without the additional pressures of human habitation and climate change.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife addresses several species--winter steelhead, summer steelhead, coho salmon, and coastal cutthroat trout--in the Rogue-South Coast Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan, out in draft form a few weeks ago.

You can call it the RSP for short, but it is long on details for changes in practices intended to stabilize and/or boost populations of the several fish species.

The Wild Salmon Center has a lot invested in the outcome; Tim Elder and Matt Sloat from WSC join us with their perspectives, along with Rachel Andras of Andras Outfitters, a fishing guide business.
