This project will identify and determine their habitat needs and any barri- ers to future survival, as well as developing approaches to conserve and manage such species. While the state has com- prehensive plans in place to manage the game species we enjoy pursuing, this is the first effort to make such a plan for the other 88 percent of Oregon's fish and wildlife that are non-game. According to Gall McEwen, special assistant to the direc- tor of ODFW, "The goal of this effort is to identify incen- tives for voluntary ap- proaches and cooperative so- lutions to reduce the risk that additional species will be added to the state or federal threatened and endangered lists." The project is being funded by the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, which has required all states to begin such efforts in order to re- main eligible for continued funds for the State Wildlife Grants funds for non-game species. This effort will create a Comprehensive Wildlife Con- servation Strategy. This strategy is currently being developed with the input and guidance of a Technical Re- view Committee, made up of ecologists, biologists and wild- life managers, and a 28-mem- ber Stakeholders Advisory Committee, composed of ag- riculture, forestry and range land managers, conservation groups, fishing and hunting interests, tourism interests, local governments, landown- ers and groups and organiza- tions that work with land- owners on conservation and Kerry & Roger Gufick Owners- Operators Phone/Fax: 541-742-6666 .

As always, ODFW wel- comes the public's input on this and any other concerns. Although many hunting seasons are now underway, it is a good time to remind hunt- ers of the Ten Command- ments of shooting safety. 1. Control the direction ofyour firearms muzzle at all times. 2. Identify your target and what is beyond it. 3. Treat every firearm as if it is loaded. 4. Be sure the barrel and ac- tion are free of obstructions. 5. Unload firearms when not in use. 6. Never point a firearm at anything you do not wish to shoot. 7. Never climb a tree or fence, jump a ditch or log, with a loaded firearm. 8. Never shoot a bullet at a flat, hard surface or water. 9. Store firearms and ammu- nition separately. 10. Avoid alcoholic beverages and drugs before and during shooting. Last week's storms im- proved hunting for ducks and geese temporarily. There are plenty of birds in the usual locales, such as Summer Lake and the Klamath Wildlife Refuge, or on many smaller bodies of water. We are look- ing for the next major storm system to locate over the state for a while before planning our next expedition. In other news, it was re- cently announced that Umatilla will be the site for the 2005 BASS Western Di- vision Championship bass tournament Mayl5-19, 2005. The top ten winners of the tournament with the great- est weight offish will advance to the national tournament in Kissimmee, Florida. This will be a,.big event, with anglers from ten west- ern states competing. Anglers from the Northwest are well represented in these events as typified by Spokane's Luke Clausen, who last year won the FLW championship and a check for $ 500,000. Such endeavors are the stuff of dreams for most out- door-minded folks. Locah Angling has slowed somewhat on the local im- poundments. Crappie, in par- ticular, are biting with less enthusiasm than in past weeks. Some anglers are tak- ing a few while trolling. Bass, bluegill, perch and catfish angling has been better, with night crawlers the offering of choice for many anglers. Steelhead angling below Hells Canyon Dam has been fair and improving. With an- other good return of fish from the Pacific, this should be an- other good year to fill your tag.

Be reminded that angling will close October 31 on many streams such as Pine and Eagle creeks. Northwest: This time of year, it is salmon and steel- head on the coastal streams. I have a few chums who plan their vacations during these wet and rainy months just to pursue these fish. Recent rainfall should have the fish moving out of the tidewaters and upriver to spawn. On the Alsea, chinook are being taken throughout the tidewater and as far up- stream as Five Rivers. Bob- ber fishing has been catching plenty of these fish. The Nestucca and Three Rivers have been good for steelhead. Fall chinook an- gling has been good, with the best catches occurring in the tidewater areas. Salmon River fall chinook angling has been fair to good. A few fish have been spotted above the hatchery. Coho angling is fair. The Siletz has been good for steelhead. Chinook an- gling has improved upriver with recent rains. Chinook are being hooked throughout Tillamook Bay and its tidewaters where an- gling is considered fair or a bit better. Coho angling has been slow and the season closes October 31. Sturgeon angling has been slow here.

Chinook Redd Survey Begins The annual aerial survey of fall Chinook nesting beds (redds) in the Imnaha and Snake Rivers downstream of Hells Canyon Dam began Oc- tober 18. Idaho Power and the United States Fish and Wild- life Service have conducted the survey each fall since 1991. In 1992, the company be- gan maintaining outflows from Hells Canyon Dam at consis- tent levels during the mid-Oc- tober-to-early-December fall chinook salmon spawning sea- son. This year, the company will hold flows at approxi- mately 8,500 cfs to ensure the nesting beds remain sub- merged. HOME CARE. HOSPICE. ASSISTED lIVING .
