Rogue River Chinook Counts Down Again

May 26, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

“The currently poor showing of wild spring chinook at Gold Ray Dam could trigger a second straight year of mid-season emergency closures on the already limited keeping of wild chinook. Through May 15, the numbers of spring chinook past the dam’s counting station is about one-fourth of the average of what has reached the upper Rogue over the past decade.” Mark Freeman in Oregon’s Mail Tribune.
