Chinook salmon released in Boise River

BOISE -- The Idaho Department of Fish and Game released another batch of Chinook salmon into the river Friday afternoon.

The release of 150 fish happened between noon and 4 p.m. at Glenwood Bridge, Parkcenter Bridge, and Barber Park.

"So when we make sure that we have enough for the hatchery we take the excess and bring them here, and that gives extra fishing opportunity for local people," said Joe Kozfkay Regional Fisheries Manager Idaho Fish and Game

The fish are from Rapid River Hatchery near Riggins, and about 25 percent of them are tagged, so officials can try and see how many are caught by anglers

Any angler who wants to catch a Chinook salmon from the river must have a valid Idaho fishing license and a salmon permit.
