The public will be able to listen to the state Fish and Wildlife Commission’s conference call Friday at four Western Washington locations. The commission is expected to vote on new allocation guidelines for the Columbia River spring chinook fishery.

People interested in hearing the discussion can do so via speaker phone at 5 p.m. at state Department of Fish and Wildlife offices in Olympia, Montesano, Mill Creek and Vancouver, Wash. No public comments will be taken at Friday’s meeting.

The conference call was scheduled after commissioners split 4-4 on a proposal made by commissioner Conrad Mahnken at a public meeting Saturday that would change allocation guidelines for this year’s spring chinook fishery on the lower Columbia River in favor of recreational fisheries.
