Sections of Snake River to close for spring chinook fishing after Friday

The Snake River spring chinook fishery will close one hour after sunset on Friday (May 18) below Ice Harbor Dam and near Little Goose Dam.

Fishing will remain open in the six miles below Lower Granite Dam and the Clarkston area until further notice.

The closure affects fishing in these areas:

From the south-bound State Route 12 Bridge at Pasco, upstream about seven miles to the fishing restriction boundary below Ice Harbor Dam.

From the railroad bridge about a half-mile below the Tucannon River mouth, up-river to the fishing restriction boundary below Little Goose Dam, and from Little Goose Dam to the Corps of Engineers’ boat launch a mile upstream of Little Goose Dam on the south shoreline. This closure zone includes the area between the juvenile-fish bypass return pipe and Little Goose Dam, along the south shoreline of the facility (including the walkway area known as “the Wall” in front of the juvenile-fish collection facility).

For more details on fishing rules and specifics, go to the state Fish and Wildlife website.
