THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE WASHINGTON DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE
Members of the Washington and Oregon Fish and Wildlife commissions will meet this week to receive updates on this year’s Columbia River steelhead run and actions taken to protect the run so far.
Four members of the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission and three members of the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission will host an online meeting from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 16.
