Feds release plan to protect chinook salmon

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The plan released Thursday by the National Marine Fisheries Service recommends a new water temperature management plan for the upper Sacramento River and Shasta Reservoir and opening dams to allow for better salmon migration, among other things.

California water regulators and Central Valley lawmakers said the plan will further erode the ability to provide a reliable water supply for the state.

The agency had to redo its plan after a federal judge in Fresno threw out its previous proposal last year.
