Group to meet about Columbia River
chinook salmon harvest, allocation

A seven-member citizen working group organized by Washington and Oregon departments of fish and wildlife will meet to review spring chinook harvest and allocation at a public meeting in The Dalles, Ore., on Monday, Sept. 16.

The working group is tasked with reviewing how the management guideline for upriver spring chinook is currently shared among recreational fisheries downstream and upstream of Bonneville Dam, including outcomes of recent years’ seasons. The workgroup will also discuss management approaches and allocation for the future.

The group is comprised of three representatives from below Bonneville Dam, two from Bonneville Dam to the Washington/Oregon border, and two from the Snake River.

The meeting will take place at the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum at 5000 Discovery Drive in The Dalles, Ore., and will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A brief public comment period is scheduled for 4 p.m.
