Coming from out of state, is the Snake River around the Coffee Pot Campground open for fishing (4/27 - 4/30)

Question:

I was told it might be closed but I understood by reading the regulations that it was open with "catch and release". Could you help in clarifying this for me

Answer:

The North and South forks of the Snake River are open to fishing during the 4/27 – 30 period.  All the tributaries to these rivers are closed.  The area near Coffee Pot will be catch-and-release fishing, only.
