Idaho: Salmon River

Each spring and fall, salmon and steelhead journey up the Salmon River.  The chasm they must make passage through is the second deepest in North America.  It is jaw-dropping beautiful.

Salmon enter our waters in late April, but are not here in force until May and June. This is when we fish for them.  They are huge and fight hard. It is like grabbing a bolt of lightning and trying to reel it in.
