Another Clearwater stretch closing to spring chinook

FISHING -- At the end of fishing hours on Thursday June 12, the fishing harvest season will close for adult Chinook Salmon (24 inches or longer) on the Clearwater River between the Orofino Bridge and the South Fork Clearwater.

The Idaho Fish and Game Department says the catch quota for the stretch has been met. 

Starting on Friday, June 13, only the harvest of adipose clipped Jacks (salmon less than 24 inches)  will be allowed on the Clearwater River downstream from the South 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 this river section.
