Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir

Description:

The Salmon Falls Dam was built in 1910 to provide irrigation water for farms but now is an important recreation site. The BLM operates Lud Drexler Park just above the dam.Anglers will find their prayers answered here, with plenty of brown trout, chinook and kokanee salmon, yellow perch, black crappie, channel catfish, small mouth bass, and walleye. This is the premier walleye fishery in Idaho, and trophy catches are common. There is ice fishing in January and February, and hunting for antelope and upland game birds in season. Located approximately one mile southwest of Jackpot, NV., the Salmon Falls Creek area offers Class I and II floatable opportunities from mid-April to late June. There are level and dry areas along the river that provide opportunities for primitive camping. Great trout fishing, wildlife viewing, and rock climbing provide additional recreation opportunities.
