Area Management Biologist explains when the Wood River Special Harvest Area might be used, Curry Cunningham talks about University of Washington's 50-million fish forecast, and a few fishermen report from the grounds.

Tonight we hear from a few of you about the season so far, and get an update on what the University of Washington's Fisheries Research Institute does for in-season forecasts. Fish and Game's Tim Sands also explains the scenarios under which the Wood River Special Harvest Area could open up.

The BBFR airs nightly between 6:30-7 p.m., re-airing at 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. Weekend broadcasts are a little early: 1:30 p.m. Get in touch with us! Send song requests, story ideas, and feedback:
