Will there be an open season for Salmon around Salmon Idaho this year?

Answer:

Unfortunately the Chinook returns are quite a bit smaller than predicted this year.  As such the fishery will be targeting only fish returning to the Sawtooth hatchery.  This year’s commission approved boundaries will be from the posted boundary downstream of the Sawtooth Hatchery (upstream of Stanley) downstream to the Salmon River Bridge upstream of the mouth of the confluence of the East Fork Salmon River.  Approximately 45 miles of stream will be open to fishing.
