when is the boise river going to be stocked with chinook and open for fishing this year?

Answer: 

Unfortunately, it is not going to be stocked with Chinook salmon during 2012. Those Chinook stocked in the past few years have originated from hatchery returns to Hells Canyon Dam.  During 2012, returns were insufficient to meet broodstck needs and to provide fish for transferring.

However, adult steelhead will be transferred in November, if returns are sufficient.
