Frank Moore Wild Steelhead Sanctuary

Frank Moore Wild Steelhead Sanctuary

The Frank Moore Wild Steelhead Sanctuary Designation Act (S. 1448) would permanently safeguard an area that contains some of the best wild steelhead spawning areas in the Pacific Northwest. Named in honor of Frank Moore, a World War II veteran and a legendary steward of the North Umpqua River, the act would safeguard drinking water, critical wildlife habitat, and cultural resources in a watershed identified as one of the most important ecological areas in the Pacific Northwest. The area provides more than 50 miles of high-quality river and stream habitat for summer and winter steelhead, chinook and coho salmon, rainbow trout, and other native species.
