Icicle River reopens Thursday for spring chinook fishing

A little more than 24 hours after announcing the Icicle River would close to hatchery spring chinook fishing, state Fish and Wildlife has done a roundabout and will reopen it again from Thursday, June 20 through July 31.

The Icicle was closed temporarily to ensure meeting spawning escapement goals.

According to state Fish and Wildlife the last 400 spring chinook needed for spawning had been achieved over the past few days. There are still 500 to 1,000 spring chinook forecast – mostly three- year-old jacks – available for anglers to catch.

Daily limit is two hatchery-marked spring chinook (adult or jack) with a minimum size of 12 inches.
