Chinook salmon fishing closes on Clearwater River

Spring Chinook Salmon fishing on the Clearwater River has been closed by the Idaho Fish and Game Commission because too few fish have returned to the region to meet hatchery spawning goals.

Meanwhile, the harvest share for the lower Salmon River and Little Salmon River has reportedly dropped under 550.

The commission plans to meet Thursday to consider whether changes are needed to that fishery. (Lewiston Tribune)
