The Idaho Fish and Game Commission has voted to immediately open the Coho Salmon fishing season in the Clearwater Region.
The season starts today (Tuesday, September 15) and is allowed 7 days a week in the Clearwater River downstream of Lewiston’s Memorial Bridge and 4 days a week – Thursday through Sunday – in the Clearwater River upstream of Memorial Bridge, North Fork Clearwater River, and Middle Fork Clearwater River.
Starting October 19th, Coho Salmon fishing is allowed 7 days a week in all open areas.
The daily limit is 2 fish.
Coho are just beginning to reach Idaho and officials expect fishing to pick up over the next couple of weeks as more fish arrive.
