Below Bonneville Fishery
The tribes have not yet made any decisions to open a tribal bank hook-and-line fishery downstream of Bonneville. Last year the short opening downstream of Bonneville caught over 47% of the total tribal spring chinook harvest. The potential of high catches downstream of Bonneville are a concern to tribal leaders who want to balance fishing in Zone 6 with any fishing that occurs downstream. If the tribes do decide to open fisheries downstream of Bonneville, there could be some restrictions to try to limit the catch. Tribal members are encouraged to contact their own tribe’s fishery department for information specific to them.
