Trinity River - Upper Fish Report for 1-24-2019
Upper Klamath-Trinity River Spring Chinook Salmon Listing
Trinity River - Upper - Lewiston, CA (Trinity County)
by Kenny Priest
At the Feb. 6 California Fish and Game Commission meeting, the commission will be taking public comments to determine whether listing Upper Klamath-Trinity river spring Chinook salmon as an endangered or threatened species under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA) may be warranted. This potential listing could have far reaching financial impacts within our community. Repercussions could range from no fishing on the Klamath from Jan. 1 through Aug. 14 to catch and release during this time period, essentially shutting down our winter and summer steelhead fishing as well as the estuary fishery. The fishing community is encouraging anglers to attend the meeting in Sacramento on Feb. 6. If you can’t attend in person, you can send public comments on this agenda item via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also mail your comments to California Fish and Game Commission, P.O. Box 944209, Sacramento, CA 94244-2090. The Written Comment Deadline for this meeting is 5:00 p.m. on January 24, 2019. Written comments received at the Commission office by this deadline will be made available to Commissioners prior to the meeting. The Late Comment Deadline for this meeting is noon on February 1, 2019. Comments received by this deadline will be marked “late” and made available to Commissioners at the meeting.
