Impacts to Tribal Fishery:
CRITFC is currently trying to understand the impacts of the Eagle Creek Fire to the tribal fishery. Please document fishing and marketing difficulties you have experienced as a result of the fire. This could be things like, limited access to fishing sites, difficulty selling catch or getting fish to market, or any other challenges you have faced. Your notes will be helpful in future assessments of fire consequences.
Evacuation levels remain unchanged.
