Conditions : Salmon River:

As of Sunday, April 13, 4,603 Spring Chinook salmon have been counted going past Bonneville Dam, the first place they are counted on their 700-plus mile journey to the Salmon and Clearwater river drainages. While predicting returning numbers of salmon is a very tricky business, early season forecasts indicate the number of spring Chinook returning this year will be much higher than in 2013.

Early projections indicate around 80,000 hatchery and wild salmon will make it to Lower Granite Dam on the Snake River. If projections hold true, Idaho anglers will be allowed to harvest 4,800 hatchery spring Chinook on the Clearwater River and its tributaries, 5,900 on the lower Salmon and Little Salmon rivers and 700 on the Snake River in Hells Canyon.

Try back trolling with metalic plugs or drifting with a corky and yarn tipped with shrimp or eggs. Check rules and regulations on Idaho Fish and Game web site. Ice is above Spring Bar. Clear near Whitebird. Look for fish to be holding in deeper slow moving pools.
