Salmon River - Salmon to North Fork

Idaho-US  

Description

This is a scenic run through a semi populated valley and small canyon as you approach North Fork.  North Fork is a likable small town with a hotel and other basic neccessities.

Start in the town of Salmon and take the river north.  There are several river braids and channels in the open valley north of Salmon.  Many of these channels can be run.  When in doubt follow the majority of the flow.

Fishing is still good here but not as good as upstream near Challis.  For a more rapid filled run look at running from North Fork to the Middle Fork or Corn Creek area.
