According to ODFW's press release, the plan doesn't paint as rosy a picture for the coastal streams like the Chetco as it does for the Rogue River:
“In smaller coastal stream basins of southern Oregon, it’s likely the production of wild fall chinook in the coastal basins is somewhat lower as compared to historical levels,” Satterthwaite said. “Fish in these populations mature at older ages than the Rogue populations. The conservation plan addresses the need for modifications to current harvest management, especially for those populations that contribute at high rates to the special late-season fishery off the mouth of the Chetco River.”
