The Clearwater hatchery is right behind me in the background on those pic. Last pic you can see a few bldgs if you look close. That is Orofino itself. Orofino is spread out along the river and to the north along a creek. We kept these fish. All have clipped adipose fins. If they have a adipose ( fin on back just in front of tail) on them then they must be released and you are not to take them out of the water. That trip I caught, I think, 23 fish in 3 1/2 days. Kept 7 or 8. The daily limit is 3 and your possession limit is 9. Season limit is 20. I have on occasion kept and eaten one that night at the hotel room. If I have a stove available to me.... Bruce
Wondered if that was Orofino in the background. I fished there only once, right below the dam. Between 4 of us only one fish caught in two days. Everyone using that rig with the "straw" bobber some guy there in Orofino made. I wonder once in awhile if he's still around there.
