I understand that salmon fishing is closed three days a week. Can I still catch and release salmon on those days?A. N

Answer

No. The Idaho Fish and Game Commission has changed the rules to allow salmon fishing on Friday through Monday only. Regardless of whether you keep any fish, anyone who is targeting salmon on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday for the remainder of the season will be subject to enforcement action by a Fish and Game Conservation Officer.
