use of the term \'URB\'

Was looking for a technical description of a URB and found the following diagram on a 2001 WDFW report...



It seems some of the fish being caught below Bonneville could be MCBs as well by definition. Is the term URB used sometimes as slang for any bright salmon caught in the Columbia? Just lookin for some clarification.

MCB - Mid-Columbia Bright
BPH - Bonneville Pool Hatchery

Then there is listed a few others -

LRB - Lower River Bright
SAB - Select Area Bright

Found on page 6 of the following document.

The image is from page 12 of said document.

Didn't realize there were so many stocks of fish. :shocked:

Well done Stinky!

Certainly seems like the term URB is overused.
I feel a little more informed.
Now which of the non-"B"s are Tules?
