Adult Chinook harvest ends in North Fork, Clearwater below Orofino Bridge

At the end of fishing hours on Friday, June 6, 2014, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game will implement a closure to the harvest of adult Chinook Salmon (24 inches or longer) on the Clearwater River from the Cherrylane Bridge upstream to Orofino Bridge and in the North Fork Clearwater River.

This closure is being implemented because the harvest quota for adult Chinook Salmon has been met in these river sections. Harvest quotas in different reaches within the Clearwater drainage were developed using input from the public to help ensure all communities in the watershed have opportunities to harvest salmon.

Starting on Saturday June 7, 2014, only the harvest of adipose clipped Jacks (salmon less than 24 inches) will be allowed downstream of Orofino Bridge and in the North Fork Clearwater River. Anglers may keep up to four adipose clipped jacks per day. Any salmon 24 inches or longer must be immediately released in these river sections.
