Giving Snake River Salmon The Freedom to Roam

manysockeye.lg.email

Snake River salmon are pretty bad-ass, especially Idaho’s iconic “red fish”. Consider this: Snake River sockeye swim more than 900 miles inland and climb more than 6,500 feet to their mountains spawning grounds in the Sawtooths of Idaho. That’s a pretty epic journey in itself, but throw in the fact that they tackle eight dams on top of that, and that’s pretty incredible. These fish are nothing, if not survivors.
