South Fork of the Salmon Sportsman Quota?


Happy Monday.

Can we get an update on what is the expected sportsman quota for the south fork of the salmon and main salmon/rapid river hatchery? I see the numbers are still looking good coming over bonneville dam for the mccall hatchery. What percent of the fish have a PIT tag?

Thanks for the help!!


As of this morning (6/18) the estimated harvestable sport-angling share is 780 adults.  This is based on the PIT data which generated a population estimate at Bonneville Dam.  As more PIT tagged fish are detected at Lower Granite Dam (upper-most dam where Salmon River fish are monitored) the quota will be adjusted accordingly.
