Chinook salmon fishing in the Lower Salmon and Little Salmon rivers has met harvest objectives and Idaho Fish and Game is closing the season on June 4.

Anglers caught the available sport harvest share during the last four-day opener, which was completed on Sunday, June 2.

The closure ends a brief spring Chinook fishing season. Biologists are currently watching the return of summer Chinook and are seeing signs there may be enough returning to allow for a fishing season on the South Fork of the Salmon River.
