Shortened Chinook fishing and bag limits on Lower Salmon and Little Salmon rivers

Print Article

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game Commission changed fishing to four days per week, Thursday through Sunday, on the Lower Salmon and Little Salmon rivers starting Saturday, June 9, and anglers will also have a reduced daily bag limit on that date.

Two stretches of the Lower Salmon will also close at midnight on June 8 and not reopen this season, which are:

• The stretch of the Lower Salmon River from mouth of Shorts Creek upstream to the boat ramp at Vinegar Creek.

• Lower Salmon River from Rice Creek bridge upstream to the southernmost of Twin Bridges that cross the Salmon River.

Bag limits will be reduced on June 9 to four Chinook per day, only one of which may be an adult, and the possession limit to 12, of which only three may be adults.
