The Spring Chinook Have Arrived in Lewiston
Exciting news for fishing enthusiasts: recent counts over Bonneville have brought our once dismal expectations up and we now have solid numbers to go by!
Clearwater Harvest Share at Record High of 3,345 Fish
Great news for fishermen! With the Clearwater harvest share hitting an all-time high, the season is now open 7 days a week for your enjoyment. And this year is proving to be extra special; the latest run we have ever seen means that fishing is expected to continue well into June.
But that’s not all. As water flows out of the Clearwater drainage are expected to drop this week, we anticipate the perfect opportunity for a big catch. Don’t miss out – book your trip today and experience the thrill of reeling in some truly impressive fish!
