The river was named for the Chinook salmon, once an important source of food for the Indians who lived along its banks. Each spring and summer the fish migrated upstream from the Pacific Ocean in countless numbers. Today, only a fraction of the salmon complete the trip. After fighting their way up fish ladders in Columbia River dams, they must escape fishermen's nets and polluted waters as they swim through the Columbia and lower Snake rivers. The survivors may travel almost to the Continental Divide where they settle in spawning grounds in the headwaters and tributaries of the Salmon River. The Tukuarika Indians once supplemented their fish diet by tracking the elusive bighorn sheep that still dwell on the rocky slopes above the Salmon. The river's canyon also shelters elk, deer, bear, mountain lion, and bobcat. Golden and bald eagles soar through the skies. Idaho's Salmon River cuts one of the continent's deepest gorges. For almost 180 miles, the foaming white waters of the "River of No Return" tumble through a passage more than a mile deep. Captain William Clark, scouting the river in 1805, stared in awe at the frothing torrent, and the Lewis and Clark Expedition veered north to find a safer route through the wilderness. "Wild River." a color special on Channel 12 on Dec. 12 at 6 p.m., captures the untamed beauty of the Salmon and reviews the struggle to protect it under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. The hour-long documentary was produced by the National Geographic Society in association with Metromedia Producers Corp. The Salmon River flows westward through parts of four national forests that make up the 1.250,000-acre Idaho Primitive Area.
