THIS SITE HAS BEEN CREATED AND IS MANAGED BY THE PUBLIC ADVISORY GROUP, PAG, TO THE KINGS RIVER FISHERIES MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (KRFMP).
Water release numbers can be found in the Hydrological and Climatic Summary Report found under “Other Reports” by clicking on “documents” on the home page of krfmp.org
The program is a combined effort, to include funding, on the parts of the Kings River Conservation District (KRCD), the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) and the Kings river Water Association (KRWA). The Public Advisory Group is the mechanism for public input to the Kings River Fisheries Management Program. Go to “History” for a very short overview of the genesis of the program.
The KRFMP has a number of documents describing what has been accomplished in prior years, what is planned for the upcoming year and what is the over arching philosophy for the restoration efforts. These documents are the annual technical Reports , the current Five Year Implementation Plan, the Fisheries Habitat Master Plan and The Water Quality Monitoring Report for 2005-2006. In addition, there is a report on the condition of Rainbow trout in the Lower Kings River. All of these documents are located on the KRCD web site.
In the “Maps & Docs” area are two documents of interest. The first one is the complaint filed with the SWRCB regarding the flows in the lower Kings River, particularly below the Fresno Weir. Many persons feel that this complaint was the catalyst for the establishment of the program. The second document is the Framework Agreement which established the Kings River Fisheries Management Program. The map shows the boundaries of the Catch and Release stretch and the two stretches where there is no fishing.
In the current water year the following activities are being proposed:
Activities scheduled during high water flow period: None scheduled
Activities scheduled during the low water flow period:
