Fall Chinook season open on Clearwater River system

Print Article

Fall Chinook seasons are now open on the Clearwater River from Memorial Bridge in Lewiston upstream to the confluence of the Middle Fork Clearwater and South Fork Clearwater rivers, as well as the mouth of the North Fork Clearwater River upstream to Dworshak Dam. These new areas are open four days per week, Thursday through Sunday while fishing downstream of Memorial Bridge remains open seven days a week.

The daily bag limit in the Clearwater, North Fork Clearwater, Snake, and Salmon rivers is six adult fall Chinook Salmon, only one of which may have an adipose fin, and an unlimited number of jacks, which are Chinook less than 24 inches long.

The possession limits for those waters are three times the daily bag limits.

For the complete rules see Chinook salmon regulations in the IDFG rule book or online.
