Federal cuts shut down Salmon River, other Idaho rivers’ monitoring gauges

A Salmon River temperature gauge critical for following the effects of climate change on Idaho’s endangered sockeye salmon was shut down by the Trump administration on Oct. 1.

The Idaho Conservation League said turning off the gauges “is yet another strike against salmon and steelhead as gauge data informs fishery management and water quality decisions.”
