Sawtooth Salmon Festival to Celebrate Idaho’s Iconic Fish on Saturday
Friday, August 26, 2022


Celebrate Idaho’s wild salmon and steelhead during Saturday’s Sawtooth Salmon Festival.

The free festival put on by Idaho Rivers United and the Sawtooth Interpretive and Historical Association in Stanley will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Stanley Museum on Highway 75 in Stanley.

It will include redd tours and a presentation highlighting the conservation, recovery and education work being done to save Idaho’s wild salmon. There also will be live music, fun activities dealing with salmon and food for purchase.

A weir tour will be offered at 10 a.m. at Pettit Lake and salmon redd tours will leave the museum at 11:30 a.m. and 1 and 3:30 p.m.

Shoshone Bannock dances will perform at 2 p.m. And Clayton’s cowboy singer Muzzie Braun will perform from 3 to 5 p.m.

Idaho’s salmon include the colorful red sockeye, as well as steelhead, coho and chinook.

They are born in the headwaters of the Salmon River near Stanley and make their way 900 miles to the Pacific Ocean where they reside for a few years before making the arduous journey past eight dams to spawn in the waters where they were born.


A free lecture “Imagining Idaho’s Wild Salmon in 2055” will be held at 6 tonight—Friday, Aug. 26—at the Stanley Museum.
