The Oregon chub, a species listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, appears to be making a comeback. Recently, the small native fish was found at two sites in the Molalla River, outside of Portland. The discovery was made by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Native Fish Investigations Program in the Lower Willamette basin, a region within the species’ historical range. Oregon chub had not been seen in this area since 1953. In a nice example of citizen involvement, ODFW paired with the Molalla River Watch to increase the range of biological surveys in the river. Welcome back Oregon chub!
