Global Protection: Unknown whether any occurrences are appropriately protected and managed
Comments: No known protected sites. The Goose Lake population is listed as threatened in California (Moyle et al. 1995). The state of Oregon listed the Pacific lamprey as a sensitive species in 1993 and followed with protected status in 1996 (Kostow 2002).
Needs: Goose Lake (California) population: improving access and flows in streams, especially Lassen and Willow creeks, would be beneficial to this species and to Goose Lake redband trout (Moyle et al. 1989).
