What game fish can be caught on the Salmon River below North Fork to the Middle Fork with spinners after the steelhead season closes in the spring?

Question:

My family owns property in this segment and we use it year-round. I've never been able to really tell my older grandkids if they can fish and what they can keep. ( Or is it catch and release for all species?) This question assumes using non steelhead gear.

Answer:

Rainbow trout (can only be kept if their adipose fin is missing), cutthroat trout, and there may be an occasional brook trout.  You can keep 6 trout (e.g. 4 rainbow, 2 cutthroat; 3 rainbow,, 3 cutthroat; etc.), 25 whitefish, and 25 brook trout.  You can also catch bull trout but you can’t keep them.
