Fishing Regulations

Question:

What are the rules on fishing from the west bank of the north fork of the Clearwater river, from the confluence with the main river, up stream to the dam? I saw some boats anchored in the north fork of Clearwater river Saturday May 17 2014, is this legal?

Answer:

There are posted signs on the river in the northfork, from near the confluence to the Asahaka bridge. Within that zone fishing from boats is not allowed. Above the bridge to a posted line below the dam is open to boat fishing. Please check the chinook fishing regulations pamphlet for a better description of this confusing rule.
