Little Salmon River Basin

The 576-square mile basin is located in northeastern Adams and southwestern Idaho Counties, and flows into the Salmon River at the northern side of Riggins (RM 86.7). The basin is mountainous and sparsely populated. Occupations in ranching, logging, and lumber manufacturing contribute much to the basin's economy. Tourism and related services are becoming more important locally, potentially helping to support the area during downturns typically experienced by natural resources-based economies.
