Salmon fishing to close June 2 at Riggins

So long, 2013 season. It seems we hardly got to know you, but it’s coming to an end. Fishing for chinook salmon in the lower Salmon River from the Rice Creek Bridge upstream to the mouth of Shorts Creek and in the Little Salmon River will close at the end of fishing Sunday, June 2.

Angler surveys show that the sport fishery in the Lower Salmon and Little Salmon rivers will harvest the nontribal fishery share of adult chinook salmon returning to the Rapid River Hatchery by June 2.

F&G commissioners will be meet later this month to see if there’s going to be enough salmon available for a season on the South Fork of the Salmon River and the Upper Salmon River between Stanley and Salmon.
