Riggins In The Salmon River

418 Words2 Pages
The Salmon River is the longest river running entirely within a single state, and remains the longest contiguous undammed river left within the continental United States (Carrey & Conley, 1978) and it provides approximately 20% of the water in the Snake River and accounts for 70% of the remaining salmon habitat for the entire Columbia River Basin (Tang et al., 2012). After 425 miles the Salmon River merges with the Snake River just north of Riggins in Idaho County. The Salmon River emerges from the Frank Church Wilderness headed west, turns north briefly and then turns west again to form a confluence with the Snake River, dividing the state of Idaho into two different time zones: Pacific Time north of the Salmon River and Mountain Time south
