Steelhead Bag Limits Increased on Upper Salmon

On February 16, 2012 the Idaho Fish and Game Commission increased the bag limits for steelhead in sections 15 through 19 on the upper Salmon River from Long Tom Creek – about three-quarters of mile upstream of the Middle Fork Salmon River – to a posted boundary about 100 yards downstream of the Sawtooth Hatchery.

Effective February 16, for the remainder of spring 2012 steelhead season, the limits are six steelhead per day, 18 in possession and 40 for the 2012 spring season.
