The Salmon River has crystal, clear waters and it is home to some fantastic fishing for a variety of trout such as rainbow, cutthroat and brook trout. Anglers also get a shot at steelhead here during their annual spawning migration which runs from fall through the spring. There are also sockeye salmon, chinook salmon and bull trout here too, but due to them being endangered in these waters, there are some regulations against fishing for them here to help them build up their populations again.
High Mountain Lakes
There are some pristine, high mountain lakes in the area. They take a little bit of effort to get to, but many of these lakes will also offer good fishing for a variety of trout. Fish the mountain lakes for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and brook trout.
