When are the salmon estimated to be in Riggins this year?

Answer

The first Chinook salmon has already been trapped at Rapid River hatchery.  Likely the first Chinook will be caught sometime this week although the fishing probably won’t start getting good for a week or two.  Pay attention to the flows as well.  They are projected to come up considerably with all this warm weather, and when this happens it often turns the water dirty and slows down or stops fish migration.
