The Salmon Region Fish and Game staff is sponsoring two open houses to meet the public and discuss wildlife and fisheries issues or concerns. IDFG will be soliciting comments for changes to 2015 big game seasons and 2016 -2018 fishing regulations. Informative displays will be on hand from all regional programs, including a summary of the 2014 Chinook fishing season and the potential for a 2015 Chinook season, a summary of enforcement activities in 2014, as well as fish screening, passage, and habitat improvement projects. Homemade chili, snacks, and refreshments will be provided.
“These informal gatherings are a great way to kick off the new year and open lines of communication with local hunters, anglers, trappers, and outdoor users,” said Salmon Regional Supervisor Tom Curet. “These also offer great opportunities to meet and greet our staff and learn about our regional fish and wildlife programs.”
The open house meeting locations and dates are as follows:
Salmon: Wednesday, January 14, Idaho Fish and Game Office, 99 Hwy 93 North
Challis: Thursday, January 15, Challis Community Event Center, 411 Clinic Road
Each open house is scheduled for 6-9 pm.

Each December the Salmon Public Library hosts the Library Pajama Party for the children of the valley. This special evening has been ushering in the holidays for many years and is a real tradition at the library. Children come in colorful pajamas, some bringing their teddy bears with them. They gather around the Christmas tree to hear holiday stories and tales and sing to Christmas carols. Parents are invited to attend with their children.
An invitation has been sent to Santa as well. He has come in the past so the library is hopeful that he will come this year too, bearing Christmas bags for the children.
The library will close early, at 4:00 pm on Christmas Eve and be closed on Christmas, Thursday, December 25 and Friday, the day after Christmas so employees can spend timewith their families. The library will reopen as usual on Saturday, December 27. Winter hours at the Library are Mon. to Wed. 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, Thurs. 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, Fri. and Sat.10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The Salmon Library also hosts a Children’s reading hour each Wednesday from 10:00 am.

Salmon Hockey's 2014 season kicked off over the weekend with two high school boy (division: Midgets) games against Butte, Montana. All ages of hockey players were able to get on the ice as of last Monday, after a crew of volunteers and rink manager Bob Barningham toiled for days to make ice for the rink.
More information about upcoming tournaments, practice times and more are available at www.salmonhockey.org.
Jeff Knudson, SHA president, says several businesses are asking him about advertising at the rink. Businesses can advertise with a small ad on the outside of the rink, a large ad inside the rink, or have an ad on the Zamboni for the entire season. Knudson said a major change for advertisers this year is that they will be listed on the organization's website, while non-advertisers will not. "The Salmon Hockey website is the go-to place for information for visiting teams so this is a huge value for businesses."
The 2014-15 advertising package is attached here, or is available at the bottom of the Lodging/Restaurants page of the Salmon Hockey website.Click Here for a PDF file: AttachmentSize SHA Ad package 2014-15.pdf149.4 KB
