With recent moderate weather, the Salmon River has not been carrying slush ice in the Salmon area in recent days. In general, if the overnight low is above 20 degrees, there won’t be ice flowing. Based on that and the forecast, this week should be ice-free.
Steelhead fishermen are picking up some fish. There aren’t a lot of people on the river in these colder, shorter, days. Afternoons can be pleasant–but when the sun goes below the ridge its time to hit the ramp.
