History of steelhead fishing on the Nez Perce Reservation in the Orofino area

I am interested in the history of steelhead fishing on the Nez Perce Reservation in the Orofino area. I understand it was closed to sport fishing in the late 70’s or early 80’s then opened back up. Does Idaho F&G have that info or can you point me in the right direction? Maybe a person or a book? Thank you for any help you can offer!

Anniversary fishing!

My first time ever fishing for steelies on the Clearwater, Orofino area. Will be headed that way again for our 5th anniversary. What better way to spend it than on the river and catching great fish!
