Spring Chinook season is open on the Snake River from Doug Bar to Hells Canyon Dam. While the fishery has opened, the fish have not made their appearance in catchable numbers. As the season progressed more fish will arrive and fishing will improve. The bag limit is four Chinook salmon of which no more than two can be adults over 24 inches.

Bass anglers have reported hot fishing for decent sized small mouth. Carp are also in the shallows and available to bow fishermen.

Only barbless hooks may be used on this stretch of the Snake River while fishing for salmon, steelhead and sturgeon, and anglers should consult the 2015 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations for other rules that may apply.
