A group tour outfitted by ROW Adventures rafts a multi-day trip on Idaho’s Salmon River, an undammed waterway through the River of No Return Wilderness.

Idaho’s Salmon River, a famous wilderness whitewater experience known as the River of No Return, will flow lower than normal this year, with snowpack around 70 percent of normal, Grubb said. “If it gets really low, it won’t be as splashy. But when you’re on a four- or five-day trip like that, you have the beach camps and campfires, the geology, wildlife and history – whitewater is a small portion of the total experience.

A $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for shooting and killing a mule deer doe in the city limits of Salmon. Idaho Fish and Game Regional Supervisor Tom Curet said the reward was offered by an anonymous donor in hopes of securing leads for Conservation Officers investigating the case. The adult doe, pregnant with fawns, was found dead from a gunshot wound on Saturday, April 4 in the 1600 block of Shoup Street.

Whether or not a crosswalk is needed at the west end of the Salmon River Bridge was one of the topics discussed at the April 8 Public Works Team meeting according to Team Chairman Fred Waidely.

He told the April 15 meeting of the full City Council that the consensus was a crosswalk is needed because that is the only pedestrian path from area motels which provides access to downtown shops and restaurants. Waidely said the southern end of the crosswalk is American Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant but the north side only has a cut in the curb which leads to a gravel path and the Stage Coach Motel parking lot. It is not ADA compliant.

(Reuters) - Montana has closed the hunting season on a wild herd of bighorn sheep, with pneumonia suspected of killing dozens of the animals whose seasonal mating rituals attract scores of wildlife watchers.

The emergency closure came after the disease-related deaths of more than 90 of the animals from a herd in northwestern Montana, where just 18 bighorns were counted earlier this month during a helicopter survey by state wildlife biologists. That is the lowest count since the herd was reintroduced to the area in 1979, they said in a statement.
