Salmon River Lodges and Legacies

News & Notes

Outdoor Idaho entered its 39th season with a program called Salmon Reckoning,” a deep dive into the complicated and controversial issue of keeping Idaho’s salmon from going extinct. That was followed by Spud Country,” our hour-long examination into the culture, the trials and tribulations, the joys and rewards of growing what are arguably the best potatoes in the country. The hour-long The Next Chapter explored what some agencies and individuals are doing to adjust to changing times. It’s a show where “change” is not so scary!  And in June we produced a show called “Wildflowers.”

The hour-long "40th Anniversary" will air in October of 2022. Other shows currently in the pipeline include programs on adaptive sports, the Bitterroots, and Rodeos.

Thanks for watching. We’ll keep you up-to-date on our YouTube channel, where you can watch material not seen anywhere else. Our Facebook page features a monthly “Iconic Idaho” photo contest. And we also have an Instagram page.
