Fall steelhead fishing

Fall steelhead fishing season is about to begin in the Salmon area.  There have been a few hard-core fishermen on the river, but not many fish stories yet.  Arrival of the fall steelhead migration seems to be a little late, but I never expect many fish before the middle of October.  Usually during the third […]

Salmon River Half-Day Float

Yesterday I had a Salmon River half-day float trip  near Salmon, a couple with two little girls in the boat.  That section of river does not have whitewater, but is a very scenic float along the cliffs near town.  The river is still cold, and the family did not want a couple of drenched little […]

Spring Rafting Trips on Salmon River

Last week I was on the Lower Salmon section of the Salmon River, with an outfitter/agency group.  Enjoying a spring rafting trip on the Salmon River is a perk, though the primary purpose of the trip was to discuss management issues on this section of river, in an on/site setting.  Developing better acquaintance with agency […]

As […]

Snowy Salmon River Mountain

Salmon River Level Projection

Snow pack in the Salmon River basin through most of the winter has been 110-120% of average.  Based on snow pack, Salmon River level projection for the summer is average or a bit over–welcome after last summer’s low water.  While the current snow pack is encouraging, it is not a guarantee.  If the weather is […]

Winter Steelhead Fishing

Winter steelhead fishing conditions  are in full effect in the Salmon area.  The Deadwater ice jam  backed up to  the Diamond Creek area, though the river has cut down through the jam for several miles, creating an ice canyon.  Launch ramps from Tower Creek down are plugged with ice.  Ramps upstream are usable.  The river […]
