I remember a flood on the Salmon River around 1956 early in June or late May of that year. I was about 6 years old at the time and so my memory is somewhat jumbled. I'm looking for some one who would be able to tell me more about this flood and the exact dates.
My Grandfather, William (Bill) Infanger had a ranch up the Salmon River at a place he had named Midway because it was supposed to be half way between Salmon and Challis. One interesting thing he did on that ranch was to build a water wheel which lifted buckets of water out of the river into a wooden sluice to irrigate his pasture and hay ground.
If anyone can remember some details about these events and people please contact me through this forum.
