Salmon River Raft Trips

We guarantee our Salmon River Raft Trips to be a lasting memory for you and your family. Please come to the Salmon River country of East Central Idaho and spend the day with us, Kookaburra Rafting, on Idaho's main Salmon River. We give you a choice of river float, either fast water with hairy rapids or, a scenic float on slower water, if you prefer. Due to a great snow pack this season, we expect a better than normal spring runoff, which equates to a more exciting white water river experience. Give a a call at 888--654-4386 and reserve today!

Steelhead Fishing on the Salmon River!

February roars in like old man winter and left us with 2 feet of snow and today we are getting some more. After getting all the driveways and trails to cabins and animals we decided we would go snow shoeing, then it started to blow in again. Maybe tomorrow.

Last fall we went scouting for elk and deer, saw allot of beautiful country and wolf tracks it was a little unnerving. But it was a great day to be out in the wilds of Salmon, Idaho. I took some pictures I will share them with you.

Steelhead fishing in October

This is a good time to plan your steelhead fishing trip on the Salmon River. We provide transportation to and from launch to take-out, a knowledgeable guide, all fishing gear, a drift boat, lunch and drinks, all you need to bring is yourself, and any extra clothing that you may require. We suggest mid October to late November as the best time to fish. Call and make your reservation today!

Why the Middle Fork of the Salmon

That's right! Why float the Salmon River Middle Fork, spend a lot of cash, eat sand, sleep on the ground, risk your neck, and go home covered in insect bites. A better staycation is one where you have a great time floating the Salmon River, but at the end of the day, you can dine in the restaurant of your choice, you can sleep in a clean, comfortable bug-free bed and enjoy the convenience of inside plumbing. All that for a fraction of the cost of a five day float.

Whitewater Rafting

Well the water in the Salmon River is warm and the rafting is wonderful make your reservations now so you will have a place on the raft. Fun will be had by all. The cow elk are caving so you might get to see some moms and babys on the  way to the put-in at Spring Creek, make sure you ask the guide to point out the caving grounds at Dead Water. It is also time for family reunions come to the Greyhouse Inn Bed and Breakfast and take a river trip with Kookaburra Rafting your family will all have a wonderful time.

Salmon River Days

Come to Salmon, Idaho and help us celebrate Salmon River Days and take a raft trip on the famous River of No Return the Salmon River. The water is still great and warming up so you can take a dip at your leisure if the Guide says its safe of course. The weather couldn't be nicer, and fun on the Salmon River. Great family times will be remembered for years as the best vacation weve had in a long time.
