Fish and Game seeks Input on upcoming Chinook season

   Local Idaho Fish and Game fishery personnel will be presenting information on this year’s run forecast for Chinook salmon and will be discussing strategies on how to best manage them. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game wants to hear from anglers on what strategies they would prefer most.

·   Lewiston: March 4, Idaho Fish and Game Office, 3316 16th Street.

·   Orofino: March 5, IDFG Clearwater Hatchery, 118 Hatchery Roe Drive, located northwest of Ahsahka Bridge.

   Each meeting will begin at 6 p.m. with a presentation and will continue until all angler comments are addressed. In the past, these meetings have lasted two hours.

   All opinions and suggestions regarding these issues are welcome.
