Is the Boise River giong to be stocked with Chinook this year? if so when?

Answer:

No, Chinook salmon that are stocked in the Boise River originate from returns to Hells Canyon Dam. Returns to Hells Canyon Dam during 2012 were insufficient to meet both hatchery broodstock needs and allow stocking in the Boise River.

However, we still plan to tranfer approximately 1000 adult steelhead in November, if returns are sufficient.
