Boise — To give more anglers a chance to catch one of Idaho’s most prized game fish, Idaho Fish and Game will release chinook salmon into the Boise River sometime after noon July 2 at the Glenwood Bridge, Americana Bridge and at Barber Park.
Any angler who wants to harvest chinook salmon from the Boise River must possess a valid Idaho fishing license and a salmon permit. Anglers will be allowed to keep two chinook salmon per day, regardless of size. The possession limit will be six chinook salmon, regardless of size. Jack salmon (those less than 24 inches) must be included in those limits. Adult salmon (those 24 inches or longer) must be recorded on an angler’s salmon permit.
For a complete list of rules for Chinook fishing on the Boise River, pick up a rules brochure at any Fish and Game office. The brochure is also available here.
