We meet at the River Rock Cafe at  6:00 am to enjoy a hot breakfast, or we can make arrangements to meet  you at  your motel. The fishing will start shortly after sunrise and end around 4:30pm. The boats will have water and hot coffee, plus ample cooler space so don't forget your favorite spirits or beverage.

 Multi Day Adventures         July 15 - Sep. 30

The multi-day fishing adventures take place on a 70 mile  roadless strech of the Salmon River we call the four gorges area. We can drift a portion of the area in 2-3 days, or the entire reach in 4-5  days. 


You will spend your days fishing and exploring the river, and your nights camping and relaxing on beautiful beaches. We provide a very comfortable camp with every possible convenience. Dinner  and breakfast will be enjoyed at camp. Lunch will be served on the boat to maximize the time spent fishing.


The summer trips will target small mouth bass and trout. Spin and fly gear will be available. The warm weather and favorable water conditions makes this trip a family favorite.

We also offer Whitewater Rafting trips. We offer day trips and exciting multi day trips in the summer.


The fall trip is a sportsman's delight. We can still catch bass and trout, but our main focus is ocean run rainbow trout (Steelhead) and Fall Chinook Salmon. We will also have the opportunity to upland game bird hunt. So bring your dog and shotgun.


These trips will make memories for a lifetime, and become a tradition for generations!


Call for prices, cost varies depending on  group size. 208-628-3862.


Bass and trout  fishing is as action packed as any fishing on the Salmon River. Trips are ran out of the Riggins Area. This trip offers great fishing and beautiful scenery.


The trip will begin at 9:00am, and fish until around 3:30pm.


We greatly encourage people to take some of their bass catch home for dinner. The trout we recommend releasing to help build numbers for future fishing. 


Our boats will be equipped for spin and fly fishing. We will provide cooler space plus water and snacks. You are welcome to bring your favorite spirit or beverage.
