The Salmon River School District is nestled in a deep mountain canyon with the Main and Little Salmon rivers running at its doorstep and just west is the Snake River, giving its reputation, "The Whitewater Capital" of Idaho. Recreational opportunities abound, making our area a natural learning habitat. Wild game--including elk, deer, bear, wild turkey, grouse, chukar--and the best Chinook salmon and steelhead fishing in Idaho abound in the national forest areas and waters that make up our backyard.
