The Idaho Fish and Game Department's Salmon Region has just posted a video of their big construction project east of Salmon on Highway 28 this past winter. The work being done will restore the floodplain and natural river processes in this stretch of the Lemhi River, which means better spawning and rearing habitat for Chinook salmon. It will take four years to complete the entire project. In the end, better habitat for Chinook salmon means more salmon in our rivers.
