Bridge to Hayden Pond near Salmon to be replaced starting in early July

Mike Demick - IDFG

The existing dilapidated bridge will be removed and replaced with a new 50-foot long by 12-foot wide bridge along with new concrete support structures. There will be no access across the creek while the bridge is being replaced.  Construction is planned to begin July 5 and is expected to be completed before the Labor Day weekend.

Hayden Creek supports threatened wild Chinook salmon, steelhead, and bull trout. In-stream construction work to replace the bridge support structures can only be completed during July through mid-August to avoid impacts to native fish spawning and rearing. This short term disruption of access to the area will provide a long term benefit of future maintenance, planned improvements, and continued fish stocking.

Anglers looking for other nearby fishing options may consider the Lemhi River at the Hayden Creek Access Area or perhaps Kid’s Creek Pond in Salmon. Both offer good summer fishing opportunity.

This project is angler dollars at work, as it is funded by Idaho Fish and Game fishing license sales.
