Panel sets three hatchery Chinook salmon seasons

Associated Press

BOISE — The Idaho Fish and Game Commission on Tuesday set three hatchery chinook salmon seasons for this summer, including fishing on the Boise River for salmon hauled there by truck.

The commissioners approved a season for hatchery spring chinook on the Boise River from its mouth to Barber Dam that opened Wednesday and will close Sept. 6.

Fish and Game expected to move about 250 salmon to the Boise by Wednesday evening, and more as they are available. They must be trucked from the Snake River because the Hells Canyon dams cut off their traditional runs.

The daily limit is two. Anglers can have six in possession, and the statewide season limit from all rivers is 20.

There are no restricted hours and fishing is allowed 24 hours a day on the Boise River. Barbless hooks are not required since only hatchery salmon will be available and they can be kept.
