The Salt holds a few rainbows and brook trout but the prime attractions are the Snake River Fine Spotted Cutthroat and brown trout in the 10-22 inch range. The Salt River offers great opportunities to catch trophy browns in the early and late part of the season as the fish move up from Palisades Reservoir.
