Salmon once flooded Idaho's rivers and streams by the millions. An army of migrating fish hell-bent on returning to the place of their origin. Chinook, Coho, Sockeye … all unique species, sharing a migratory life cycle that rivals that of any animal on the planet.

Idaho's history is rich with salmon; the fish provide the essential life-giving marine elements to mountains situated hundreds of miles from the coast. But today they are all but gone, their abundance lost to human needs and excess.

Outdoor Idaho explores the decline of Idaho's remarkable salmon and what's being done to bring them back from the brink of extinction. More at earthfix.us/larry.
