Hook and Hunting: Statewide Salmon Season

Posted: Updated:

There's still ice on most lakes but the last weekend in April is quickly approaching, which signals the opening of statewide salmon season.

This year all streams and rivers in the state will open on April 27th and run until the end of September.

Local businesses can always tell when fishermen are getting ready to hit the river as they begin to pour in to make their final preparations for what should be a great season.

Some rivers and streams are open year round to salmon fishing but most are not.

Be sure to check an updated fishing guide for which river is open and when.
