CHINOOK HARVEST WILL CLOSE ON LOWER CLEARWATER

The Clearwater River will close to chinook salmon fishing from the Camas Prairie Railroad Bridge near Lewiston upstream to the Cherry Lane Bridge at the end of fishing hours on Sunday, May 17.

Idaho Fish and Game officials said the closure is because the harvest quota for adult chinook salmon has been met in that section.

Chinook salmon seasons continue on the Clearwater River upstream from the Cherry Lane Bridge and the North Fork Clearwater; as well as the South Fork Clearwater, Middle Fork Clearwater, Lower Salmon River, the Little Salmon River, Lochsa River, and Snake River.
