clearwater anglers can keep the big ones


The Idaho Fish and Game Commission voted unanimously to lift the restrictions on harvest of steelhead on the Clearwater River for the remainder of the 2014 season effective immediately. The decision was made during the commission meeting on Thursday, March 20, 2014.

Prior to today's change, anglers on the Clearwater River were only allowed to keep steelhead between 20 and 28 inches in length. Today's change will allow those anglers to keep steelhead longer than 28 inches as long as they have evidence of a clipped adipose fin. The daily bag limit of 1 and the possession limit of 2 remain the same on the Clearwater River for the remainder of the 2014 spring season.
