The Sawtooth National Recreation Area is opening campgrounds along the Salmon River for the spring steelhead fishing season beginning this weekend. Mormon Bend and Salmon River campgrounds are downriver from Stanley close to popular fishing areas and will be available to the public for an overnight fee of $5.  No water or trash collection will be available but restrooms will be open.

SNRA Deputy Area Ranger Brian Anderson stressed the need for anglers to use the campgrounds rather than camping along state Highway 75 for safety reasons.
