Steelhead derby at Lewiston?

With the steelhead size limits on the Clearwater, are they going to have a fish derby at Lewiston this year? If they do how will it work? Is there a chance you could remove the size limit just for Nov. 28th to Dec.1st for the derby? Thanks, Kevin

Answer

Kevin,

 

Yes, the steelhead derby is on.  Check the following website for details:  http://www.steelheadderby.com/ .

The derby must follow all rules set by the Idaho Fish and Game Commission.  As a Department, we can not waive size restrictions or increase bag limits, so on the main Clearwater River from the confluence with the Snake River to the Orofino Bridge, you can keep one steelhead per day and they must be 28" or less in length.
