The Salmon River is located in Idaho. The Salmon is also known as “The River of No Return”. It flows for 425 miles through central Idaho, from its headwaters above the Sawtooth Valley, and its confluence with the Snake River.
The Salmon River is a popular destination for whitewater rafting and fishing.
Several national forests provide for numerous recreation opportunities within the river’s watershed. Two segments (the Middle Fork and a section of the main Salmon River, known as the Main Fork) are protected as National Wild and Scenic Rivers.
