Our guides will exceed client expectations

Spring Chinook

Spring Chinook are one of the most sought-after fish due to their size and remarkable table fare. The average Springer is 15 pounds with larger fish tipping the scales at 30 pounds.

Our Clearwater Salmon Guides typically back bounce, hover, float-fish, and back-troll for springers. Plugs, prawns, and roe are typically the top producers for these fish.

The springer season and quota are set each spring. The season typically starts in May and runs to July or whenever the quota is met. Clearwater Springers are one of Idaho’s most sought after anadromous fish that return to Idaho.
