FISHING -- Anglers should feel confident that the spring chinook season will remain open on the Clarkston designated area of the Snake River in Washington through the Memorial Day weekend, according to Glen Mendel, Fish and Wildlife's southeast Washington fisheries biologist.
Regarding yesterday's update on the fishery, he just released this clarification:
A clarification regarding the Clarkston fishery. After further internal discussions there are no efforts at this time to implement an emergency closure that I am aware of, so the fishery remains open until further notice as it was established earlier. I don’t anticipate any closure that will affect fishing there this Sunday and Monday, but always check the emergency regulations section of our agency website to make sure the situation has not changed.
