CHINOOK FISHING ON S.F. SALMON TO CLOSE JULY 3

Idaho Fish and Game will close fishing at 10 p.m. Friday. F&G’s angler surveys indicate sport anglers will have harvested the non-tribal share of hatchery chinook salmon 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.

Anglers can stay current on chinook fishing by going to fishandgame.idaho.gov/fish/chinook/rules, or by calling the Salmon hotline at (855) 287-2702.
