Protect the Salmonberry River

September 17, 2014 By: Erin Block

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is currently holding an open comment period for a proposed development plan for the Salmonberry River Corridor, which holds some of the purest populations of wild, native salmonids in the Pacific Northwest. The Salmonberry river is home to endangered Coho salmon, winter steelhead, summer and fall Chinook salmon and both resident and anadromous cutthroat trout. The Native Fish Society urges anglers to take time to comment and help protect the Salmonberry River and its wild fish populations protected from development.
