New Bag Limit Allows Idaho Anglers
by Associated Press
LEWISTON, Idaho -- The Idaho Fish and Game Commission says anglers can keep more jack chinook.
The Lewiston Tribune reports that starting Friday, the bag limits have increased on the Clearwater River and its tributaries, the lower Salmon River, Little Salmon River and the Snake River in Hells Canyon.
In the Clearwater Basin, anglers will be able to keep six hatchery Chinook per day as long as at least five of them of them are jacks -- Chinook that return to freshwater after spending just one year in the ocean. Any chinook 24 inches long or shorter is considered a jack.
Anglers fishing the lower Salmon River, Little Salmon River and the Snake River in Hells Canyon can keep six Chinook per day as long as at least four of them are jacks.
