Upper Salmon Weekly Chinook Report (7/9/12)

July 10, 2012 - 4:00pm -- idfg-vosborn

Angler effort picked up again this past weekend compared to the one before, but there were still a few open holes out there. The addition of section 18 to the fishery also helped to spread anglers out and opened up some more good water. For the week 206 adults and 25 jacks were kept, while 95 non ad-clipped adults were released. Anglers averaged approximately 21 hours per Chinook caught in section 19 and 29 hours per Chinook caught in section 18. To date, season totals are 278 hatchery adult Chinook kept and 122 unclipped adult Chinook released. As of today (July 9nd), the number that have been trapped at the Sawtooth Fish Hatchery is 1,175 hatchery adults, 105 hatchery jacks, and 173 wild. Hopefully the best is yet to come since fishing should only keep improving as more Chinook continue to move into sections 18 and 19.   - Brent Beller, Salmon Region Fisheries
