Spring Chinook Season Kicks Offby Rich Landers
Spokesman-Review, April 24, 2014
SALMON -- Two sections of the Snake River in Washington below Little Goose Dam and Clarkston will open to fishing for spring chinook salmon today for what biologists are predicting to be an excellent run of fish up the river and into Idaho.
Two other sections of the river below Ice Harbor Dam near Pasco and below Lower Granite Dam will open Sunday.
Each section of the river will be open three days a week.
The Little Goose Dam and Clarkston area sections will be open Thursday through Saturday. The sections of the river below Ice Harbor Dam and below Lower Granite Dam will be open Sunday through Tuesday.
In Idaho, springer seasons will begin Saturday on the Clearwater, Lochsa, Lower Salmon, Little Salmon and Snake River in Hells Canyon from Dug Bar to Hells Canyon Dam. Closing dates will be determined by harvest quotas.
