Fishing was slow last week, with high water leaving most of the state's share of the run yet to be harvested. Joe DuPont, regional fisheries manager for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, said the latest projections show Idaho will have a harvest share of just 617 adult spring chinook. So far anglers have caught and kept an estimated 98 chinook, leaving more than 500 yet to catch.

Fishing remains open seven days a week on the Snake River in Hells Canyon between Hells Canyon Dam and Dug Bar. Anglers there have caught just 51 adult chinook out of a harvest share of nearly 200.
