One of the perks of landing at the Jet Charter Airport at Lemhi County, Idaho, is immediate access to some of the best hunting, fishing and river rafting in the state.
Lemhi airport is just four miles from the city of Salmon, in eastern central Idaho. History buffs may recall that Salmon was the birthplace of Sacajawea, the only female member of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Salmon is justifiably proud of this link, and is home to the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural and Education Center. The center is happy to share knowledge on the rugged young explorer, and her Native American Shoshone culture.
Modern explorers come to enjoy the same natural beauty that astounded Lewis and Clark. This city of Salmon is home to about 3,170 people as of 2019. Though small, the town has a welcoming attitude and all the amenities to outfit or guide visitors through the pristine wilderness.
Winter guests come for the nordic and downhill skiing, snowmobile tours and ice skating. The other three seasons offer horse-back tours, fishing, hunting, and white-water rafting expeditions.
The jet charter airport in Lemhi County, Idaho has one 5,510-foot runway. This is ideal for turboprops and charter jets up to super-mid-size length. The airport is 250 miles from the state capital airport in Boise, making it a convenient 1-hour hop for a charter air-taxi. You could do a presentation in Boise, then commute to Salmon for a weekend of recreation.
