Over the last few years, videographer Skip Armstrong has been working with SOS and the great folks at Idaho Rivers United to provide a closer look at the salmon, rivers, and habitat of the magnificent Snake River Basin in central Idaho and northeast Oregon.
“It was absolutely amazing to be at Dagger Falls and Selway falls to witness these fish returning to their homewaters,” says Armstrong. “It’s a difficult feeling to describe but I would often feel so inspired at the end of the day. How could one not after witnessing such a sight? These fish achieve a seemingly impossible feat when they arrive at and then pass these big rapids. I used my kayak and snorkeling equipment to get to unusual vantage points to film and was happy to stay out for the entire day to shoot.”
