Lower Snake Salmon Season to Close

Spring chinook salmon season on the Lower Snake River, from Lewiston upstream about 30 miles to Heller Bar, closes at the end of fishing hours on Monday, May 31. In the first four weeks of that season, 100 salmon were kept by anglers, 74 caught and released, and 6,600 hours of angler effort expended.

The season on the southern end of Hells Canyon, from the Dug Bar boat ramp upstream to Hells Canyon Dam, remains open until August 1, unless it is closed earlier for biological reasons. Seasons are also open in the Clearwater River drainage, Lower Salmon and Little Salmon rivers.
