Do It At Altitude

What Would You Do To Keep Snake River Salmon Spawning?

An array of holiday contests and giveaways are making their way around the web, but how about taking part in one that has a great cause in mind: saving salmon.

There are not many issues that people can agree on. But for 20 years, a diverse coalition of commercial, sport and recreational fishing groups, outdoor industry businesses, conservation organizations, and clean energy and taxpayer advocates have joined forces to save a icon of the American West – Snake River salmon.

These fish are bad ass. Snake River sockeye have the most epic migration of any salmon on Earth – swimming more than 900 miles inland and climbing nearly 7,000 feet in elevation to spawn in the rugged Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho. That's right folks – these fish do it at altitude!

So, what would you do to keep Snake River salmon spawning? Between Dec. 1 and Dec. 21, give us your best answer to that question.

On Dec. 21, we'll randomly choose who will win an Osprey Pack filled with 5 pounds of wild smoked salmon! It doesn't get much better than that!
