Idaho Campsites Buried by Snow Won’t be Open for Steelhead Fishermen

STANLEY, Idaho (KLIX) Steelhead fisherman will need to find other accommodations as campsites normally open to them are still buried under snow. According to the Sawtooth National Forest, the Sawtooth National Recreation Area is under a lot of snow preventing crews from accessing campsites usually open this time of year for fishermen. Specifically Mormon Ben and the Salmon River Campgrounds are under too much snow. Forest officials say they will wait for the snow to melt before they can get into the campgrounds. The forest has suggested Steelhead fishermen use other facilities near Stanley:

  • Mountain Village, (208) 774-3661 
  • Lower Stanley Motel, (208) 774-3566
  • Stanley Town Square, (208) 918-1578
  • You can also contact the BLM office in Salmon at (208) 756-5400 to check on the status of BLM campgrounds along the upper Salmon River.

Officials also warn people heading into the area to watch out for falling rock onto the road and abundant wildlife.
