Section 7. Abstract


The Northwest Power Planning Council’s (NPPC) Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program calls for long-term planning for salmon and steelhead production within 31 subbasins. Of these subbasins the Salmon River Subbasin is one. The Salmon River flows 410 miles north and west through central Idaho to join the Snake River at Mile 188. The Salmon River is the largest subbasin in the Columbia River drainage, excluding the Snake River, and has the most stream miles of habitat available to anadromous fish. The total watershed is just over 14,000 square miles (NPT & IDFG,1990) and straddles two physiographic provinces. The Northern Rocky Mountain Province encompasses 90 percent of the subbasin and is characterized by high, mature mountains and deep, intermountain valleys. The western tenth of the drainage lies within the Columbia Intermountain Province, which includes an mountainous mass cut by deep canyons. Elevations range from 900 feet to 12,600 feet at Mount Borah. The need for the assessment of this subbasin is stated above, it covers many miles and has some diverse habitat. The Nez Perce people have been fishing within the Salmon River Sub-basin since time immemorial. We believe that the Nez Perce Tribe can help to rehabilitate and protect this land that the Tribe has usual and accustomed rights to (Treaty of 1855).
