Re: Salmon Idaho
I'm not from there, but spend about 5 to 6 weeks a year in the area hunting and fishing. I have lived in Nebraska three different times, so may be able to give you some information. What exactly are you interested in?
Up side for guys hanging around this forum is that you are in the center of some great hunting and fishing. The steelhead fishing can be great at times. You are close to the borders of two of Idaho's largest wilderness areas. We have been elk hunting that area for about 35 years and it is not unusual to see elk, deer, bear, goat and Big Horn Sheep during the hunt.
The down side for the wife is that the closest place to go shopping outside of Salmon is Idaho Falls to the south-east, Missoula to the North, and Ketchum to the south, all least a three hour drive one way, and all over some mountain passes that get exciting in the winter time.
I haven't looked at property prices, so can't comment on that. Anything on the river or in the mountains will be high though. One other thing, Salmon is not that high in elevation, and so the winters are a little more mild. I would not locate near the river. Every so often the river plugs with ice in the Deadwater area, and everything floods back to Salmon. It is some pretty wild and scenic country. Hope this helps.
