The Idaho Fish and Game Commission reopened spring Chinook salmon fishing on portions of the Clearwater River and the Little and Lower Salmon Rivers starting June 3 with several changes to the previous seasons that closed May 24.
The reopened spring fishing season will target jack Chinook in the Clearwater River, and adult and jack hatchery Chinook in the Salmon, and Little Salmon rivers. Fishing will be limited to Thursday through Sunday weekly.

Anglers should pay special attention to rules on the Clearwater pertaining to harvest of jacks, clipped and unclipped fish, and no adult harvest until June 22 to protect returning spring Chinook.
