As of Tuesday, July 8, 2014
Angler surveys indicated that sport anglers will have harvested the non-tribal share of hatchery chinook salmon for 2014 in the South Fork Salmon River by Wednesday. So Fish and Game director Virgil Moore has signed an order closing the South Fork Salmon to chinook fishing at the end of fishing hours today, July 9.
The Little Salmon River from the Pollock Bridge on Highway 95 at milepost 190 upstream to the Boulder Creek Road remains open until July 27. Idaho Fish and Game typically releases about 200,000 smolts each year in the upper section of the Little Salmon, so adult fish will return to that area.
