Upper Salmon Weekly Chinook Update 7/15/2012

July 17, 2012 - 2:52pm -- idfg-vosborn

Angler effort picked up again this past weekend compared to the one before, but that did not result in many more harvested Chinook. In general, the numbers from the week were similar to those from the week previous. Between July 9th and July 15th, 221 adults and 5 jacks were kept, while 130 non ad-clipped adults were released. Anglers averaged approximately 28 hours per Chinook caught in section 19 and 55 hours per Chinook caught in section 18. To date, season totals are 499 hatchery adult Chinook kept and 252 unclipped adult Chinook released. As of today (July 16th), the number that have been trapped at the Sawtooth Fish Hatchery is 1,982 hatchery adults, 166 hatchery jacks, and 290 wild. Hopefully the best is still yet to come and more Chinook continue to move into sections 18 and 19.   - Brent Beller, Salmon Region Fisheries
