Fish are stocked in key areas like Barber Park.


Fish were stocked in three locations

Idaho Fish and Game released 251 chinook, including 151 jacks and 100 adults, which brings the total to about 400 chinook stocked in the Boise River.

Chinook salmon were released at Glenwood Bridge, ParkCenter Bridge and Barber Park. Friday was the second release of chinook into the Boise River this summer.

The first release of approximately 150 chinook was comprised of approximately 50 adult chinook (24 inches or longer) and approximately 100 jacks (less than 24 inches in length).

Any angler wishing to catch and keep salmon from the Boise River must possess a valid Idaho fishing license and a salmon permit.

Anglers are allowed to keep two chinook salmon per day, regardless of size. The possession limit is 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.
