Salmon River - Torreys to East Fork

Idaho-US  

Description

This stretch is mellow and very scenic and an absolute must do for anglers.  From Torrey's Hole down to the town of Salmon you can mainly expect class I to II water.  Drift boats and fishing rigs are the norm here.  For those wanting to fish Rainbow, cutthroat, bull trout and Steelhead; this is your paradise.

Besides the river there is a lot of history in this part of Idaho.  Visit Clayton, ID while you are here to see the old sawmills and mine remnants.
