Salmon River Gorge April 1983 Expedition Final Falls

Another close-up view of Final Falls showing the large cavern and splash pool below the falls. This view also shows why Final Falls dramatically forms the upper extent for chinook and steelhead that spawn in the Salmon River. From this point, fish populations in the upstream reaches of the Salmon are limited to native trout species.

From this viewpoint, the group began a traverse across the open cliffs to the left of the falls to a viewpoint of Frustration Falls, located roughly 200 yards above Final Falls.
