Mouth of the Salmon River Access

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

This access is located in Somes Bar approx. ½ mile down Ishi Pishi Road on both sides of the bridge over the Klamath River. On the east end of the bridge there is a foot trail down to the confluence where the Salmon River meets the Klamath River. This is a very popular fishing spot for Salmon and Steelhead. (Check the Fish & Game regulations for this area)

On the west end of the bridge there is a gravel dirt road that goes under the bridge ending across from the confluence. A popular put-in for rafters floating down through the Ikes rapids to Orleans.

For all boating on the Klamath, please read the restrictions on the Karuk Ceremonial dates.  Water and garbage service are not provided. Bring enough water for drinking, cooking and washing as well as extra water to drown campfires each day. Please take all trash, garbage, fish guts and dog droppings with you when you leave. Dogs on leash only.
