Well Summer is just about over. Time to start thinking about Fall catching!
The Clearwater "B run" Steelhead are just now starting to leave the Pacific Ocean headed our way. Generally takes them about 4 to 8 weeks to get here, depending river flows and temp. Warmer the water the slower they show up. As some of you already know, keep season starts on Oct. 15. Prior to this date it is catch and release. This is a great fall / winter sport! You want to put this on your to do list!
Also recently, Idaho Fish and Game has opened a Fall Chinook fishery in the area. Opens August 24th and closes Oct. 13th. The regulations say you can take six adults a day and unlimited jacks. Jacks are a Chinook Salmon under 24". Adults are 24" and larger. Evidently we must have a few of those coming back to Idaho! This should make for a very fun fall! Have also heard we just might see a record Coho Salmon run to Idaho. I thought global warming was killing all the Salmon, what is up with that?
We will have to see where this all plays out very soon!
If you are interested in these trips, do not wait too long! The Fall Chinook season is only 6 weeks long. The Coho run generally lasts thru Oct.
Currently we have room!
