Do I need to record salmon I keep that are less than 24 inches on my permit?

Answer

No. Anglers need to record only salmon longer than 24 inches on their permit. But anglers cannot retain salmon less than 24 inches in length in the Salmon River upstream of the town of Salmon. This restriction in the upper Salmon River is to protect endangered sockeye salmon from incidental harvest.
