Idaho Fish and Game will close salmon fishing at 10 p.m. on July 3.
Surveys indicate sport anglers will have harvested the non-tribal share of hatchery chinook salmon returning to the South Fork Salmon River by that time.
Chinook salmon seasons continue on the Clearwater River upstream of the Orofino Bridge, South Fork Clearwater, Middle Fork Clearwater, Lochsa, Snake, upper Salmon, and Boise rivers.
