Salmon Season to Open Sept. 1 in Idahoby Staff
Bellingham Herald, August 17, 2011
Fishing will be allowed on the Snake and Clearwater rivers.
If you're getting ready for the fall chinook salmon season, it's just around the corner.
The season will run until Oct. 31 or until further notice in the Snake River from the Washington-Idaho border upstream to Hells Canyon Dam and in the Clearwater River from its mouth upstream to the Memorial Bridge.
The Snake River is divided into four management sections:
There is no limit on the total number of adult fall chinook an angler may keep during the fall season.
An adult chinook is 24 or more inches in total length, and only chinook with a clipped adipose fin may be kept. The season is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
There are no daily, possession or season limits on fall chinook jacks, but only jacks with a clipped adipose fin may be kept. Anglers must have a valid permit to fish for salmon.
