sportsman's quota on the upper salmon river for 2014

What is the sportsman's Quota on the upper salmon river this year

Answer: 

It's roughly 1,200 fish in 2014.  This is based on the projected number of hatchery Chinook that are returning to Pahsimeroi and Sawtooth hatcheries.  We subtract the number of adult fish needed for brood stock and divide what's left between tribal and nontribal anglers.

 The run coming back to Pahsimeroi is smaller than we had hoped and the quota is only about 140 adults - so we may be forced to close from the North Fork to Pahsimeroi much sooner than the Pahsimeroi to Sawtooth Fish Hatchery.
