Where’s my rock to stand on? Salmon fishing June 17 along the Little Salmon River near Riggins.


Fishing will resume Friday, June 7. F&G announced a fishing closure last week when it appeared anglers would catch the sport harvest share of chinook, but apparently that didn’t happen.

The season is open only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until further notice. Fishing hours are from 5:05 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The Little Salmon will open from a posted boundary about 50 yards upstream of the Little Salmon River mouth to the U.S. 95 bridge near Smokey Boulder Road.The daily limit is four chinook salmon, only two of which may be adults; the possession limit is 12 chinook salmon, only six of which may be adults. The statewide season limit is 10 adult chinook during any salmon seasons occurring before Sept. 1

Any adipose fin-clipped chinook salmon 24 or more inches in total length is an adult. Jacks are less than 24 inches in length. Only adipose-fin-clipped chinook may be kept.
