The Main Salmon will amaze you with many great white sand beaches and camp sites surrounded by Poderosa Pine's.
Fishing and hiking opportunities abound, rainbow and cutthroat trout are the fish choice wether you prefer casting a spinner in the ripples or fly fishing in the side streams.

The Salmon is like no other, it has terrifically large beaches where you can play volleyball, frisbee, or lay around in a chair and soak up some rays. The warm weather that typically accompanies this trip ensures a great family vacation.
