Salmon River Fishing Report

Below Challis Bridge 3/22 in the morning

The Salmon River’s flows have increased over the past few days contributing  to the low visibility of the river. Yesterday afternoon the river had cleared significantly but the flows increased due to the  temperatures later. Right now the clearest water seems to be in the afternoon and in the morning green. The river peaked early  this morning at a little over 2000 cfs at the Clayton gauge but has dropped to 1970 cfs  and is still dropping. Hoping the cooler weather will slow all of this down. The fish are showing up with the last report at the Pahsimeroi Hatchery showing 788 fish on March 20th.  Fishing has remained slow but hoping it will get better by this weekend.
