Idaho Fish Report
Fall season rule changes for Chinook are now in place
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Water levels are low. Anglers should try to fish early or late evening. Deep holes, shaded areas and tributary mouths will have cooler water temperatures where fish will often congregate during the summer months. Most anglers are fly-fishing or casting spinners. A sizeable portion of the lower river is private, but anglers can find good public access up higher in the watershed. Fall season rule changes for Chinook are now in place Aug. 31-Dec. 31. No retention of adult wild Chinook.
