Salmo, British Columbia

Salmo is located at the junction of highways 3 and 6 and is about a half hour from Castlegar to the west and Nelson to the north, and Trail to the south, with good access to nearby attractions. These include Ainsworth Hot Springs, the Kootenay Lake area, provincial parks, lodges, golf courses and the like. Salmo is the Latin word for salmon and the original name for the town was Salmon Siding, with the Salmon River nearby. Names have since been shortened to the Latin form to ease confusion. The spawning salmon have largely disappeared. The Shambhala Music Festival in August is held at Salmo River Ranch and attracts large numbers, transforming the usually quiet town. A revitalization project for Salmo's 1930s-style architecture is underway.
