What is the Oregon Plan?

The Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds is a broad-based effort of citizens, local watershed groups, the State of Oregon, and federal agencies to restore healthy salmon populations and their watersheds.

The most important part of the Plan is the idea that people working together, with the support of state and local government, can do more to help fish than could be accomplished by a strict regulatory approach. 

 The Plan has been in effect for eight years.  Hundreds of projects designed to improve stream habitat and watershed conditions have been completed.  Support for watershed groups, SWCD’s, and landowners has brought people together to develop stream restoration plans tailored to the needs of the local community.

Monitoring Program Activities


Monitoring programs under the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds are designed to assess the status and trends in fish populations and aquatic habitat in Oregon’s coastal and lower Columbia River basins.   Coordinated site visitations with aquatic habitat surveys, juvenile rearing surveys and adult salmon spawning surveys provide a comprehensive view of freshwater habitat, fish distribution, and abundance of coho salmon and steelhead at juvenile and adult life stages.  The sampling framework and panel structure are designed to summarize habitat and population information at the monitoring area scale and at the population scale.
