What does it look like for a season o the upper end of the Salmon River in the Stanley area upstream to 100 yards downstream from the Sawtooth Hatchery?

Question:

I'm trying to set my time off to fish this area.

Answer:

Because the overall return of spring/summer Chinook salmon to Idaho is smaller than orginally anticipated we have deferred making a decsion about the fishery in the Upper Salmon River  while gathering and analyzing PIT tag detection data relevant to  hatchery returns to that area.   It is clear that some fishing opportunity will likely be approved in the Upper Salmon River but the opening date, bag and possession limits, and river sections opened to fishing have not been finalized yet. The Idaho Fish and Game Commission will meet via teleconfernce on June 11 and one topic for deliberation will be the propsed fishery in the Upper Salmon River.
