The b'LAWg - Dave Law's Fish Stories

The b'LAWg - Clearwater River Spring Salmon

Posted: Updated:

Spring Salmon fishing opened on April 23rd, and they have been running up the Clearwater River in decent numbers since the middle of May. Fish ladder counts at Ice Harbor and Lower Monumental Dams have been showing steady numbers of migrating Chinooks since the 1st week of May through this posting (Memorial Day Weekend). Now, the season is regulated by the projected salmon migration and harvest, so it could close shortly.

  I want to thank Mike Jarrett for sharing some "nice photos" from his trip last week…"Sweet 26lb & 18lb Brights, Mike!" He said they were caught using a diver and cured roe. I wish I could get down there, but I'll probably have to wait until the fall run…sigh.
