Management Plans

Have A Management Plan For Us?

Right now, we don't have a mechanism to upload plans to the site. However, if the plan is small enough, please email it to us at rivers@fws.gov. Alternatively, if the plan is too large to send via email, please contact Dan for assistance in getting the plan to us. Thank you.

Management Plans, Listed Alphabetically by River Name

Below are some of the ones we've already gathered. If you do not see a plan here for the river you are interested, please do not contact us asking for it; we don't have it. Instead, you could try contacting the managing agency for that river. For example, if you would like to see any plans for the Klamath River in Oregon, please contact the Medford or Klamath Falls Offices of the Bureau of Land Management.

Some of these plans may have been superceded by newer plans. We encourage you to check with the administering agency (e.g., the Bureau of Land Management in Montana for the Upper Missouri River).

Some of these plans are courtesy of American Whitewater. They maintain a download site for plans, as well. If you don't see a plan here, you might want to check there.
