Salmon River snowpack above average

Salmon River snowpack above average in early December:  This morning the snowpack in the Salmon River drainage is 110% of average.  Earlier it was nearly 200%, after some early storms, but, though diminishing between storms, is still strong.  However, it is very early to mean a great deal.  Last year at this point our snowpack […]

River Trips are for EVERYONE!

The best vacations are all-inclusive. Our river trips on Idaho’s Salmon and Middle Fork Salmon Rivers have it all.   As you can see, river trips have something for everyone. There is so much more to enjoy than just floating down the river. You’ll enjoy plenty of “camp time” which includes fishing, games, hikes, delicious, […]

Catch-and-keep steelhead harvest has been allowed in Salmon River

A catch-and-keep steelhead harvest has been allowed in the Salmon River, beginning on 15 October.   The limit will be two hatchery fish per day, one less than recent limits.  Apparently increasing numbers of steelhead in the system led Idaho Fish and Game Department to modify the earlier catch-and-release-only regulation. River temperature yesterday at mid-day was […]

Salmon River snowpack above average

The Salmon River snowpack is significantly above average the end of March. Reporting stations in the headwaters of the Middle Fork indicate about 150% of average snowpack for this date.  This would suggest that there will be higher than average river flows this summer.  Not a guarantee–a warm, dry spring could still change things.  The […]

Steelhead Fishing Conditions in Salmon

Steelhead fishing conditions in Salmon are still difficult.  The river is still mostly frozen.  In many years the ice is beginning to break up by this time of the winter, but there is little open water in the Salmon area.  The ice has filled all boat ramps, so that when the river does open, the […]

Salmon River Snowpack

Snowpack in Salmon River Country

The snowpack in the Salmon River basin is a little below average, at 90% this morning, though precipitation since the beginning of the water year on 1 October is above average, at 110%.  The fall was so warm that early precipitation was rain rather than snow, so the snowpack was slow to accumulate.  Now, we […]
