Why are they letting fishermen catch Pahsimeroi Chinook salmon above the Little Salmon River confluence to vinegar creek?


Thanks for the question and your interest in this fishery.  Unfortunately there are very few Pahsimeroi fish returning this year and their chance of encounter in this fishery is very small.  Even when the Pahsimeroi  Hatchery Chinook return is robust only a small fraction of the Pahsimeroi stock are caught in the Little Salmon to Vinegar Creek stretch.
