Will there be a Chinook season for the Upper Salmon River?

Answer:

It's too early to tell.  Counts of Chinook salmon passing Bonneville Dam have been below pre-season projections.  We will continue to collect data on the returning fish and if counts show a surplus of fish to our hatchery broodstock needs in the Upper Salmon, we will authorize a season.  At this point in time, odds are not good.
