Western Rivers Conservancy and the Sawtooth National Forest have teamed up to conserve 619 acres along Pole Creek, one of the Sawtooth Valley’s highest priority salmon-spawning streams and a key tributary to the Salmon River.
The project protected over a mile of Pole Creek, which is designated “critical habitat” for Chinook salmon, summer steelhead and bull trout along most of its length. It also conserved a short reach of the Salmon River near the confluence with the creek.Salmon River - Pole Creek
