Salmon Fishing Update - May 12

Chinook salmon are slowly making their way to Idaho.  Last weekend, the Clearwater River averaged 16 hours per salmon caught - downstream of the Cherry Lane Bridge.  Estimated harvest was 426 fish.

Fishing on the Snake River was slow, as well with an estimated harvest of 12 Chinook.

The lower Salmon River (confluence to Riggins) saw a few fish caught and there was no documented harvest of salmon in the Little Salmon River.

If river flows don't increase dramatically in response to the warm weather - it should be a good weekend to try the lower Clearwater and Salmon rivers for Chinook.
