Steelhead season is open

Though we've got a little time before fishing gets good, it actually opened September 1st. It's always best to be thinking ahead about when you can get away from it all, and go fishing. We suggest from the  middle of October til the river ices up, usually toward the end of November is the best time for steelhead. We employ the most experienced fishing guides available for our section of the Salmon River. Our guides all drift the river in boats, giving you the best opportunity for catching fishing. Book with Kookaburra today!

In order to insure that you get your pick of launch time, and guide availability, book early. We guarantee you will have the time of your life and a lunch that is superior to anything our competition offers.

The Steelies are waiting for you

Attention steelhead fishers: the steelies are waiting for you to hit the water! Prime time for steelhead fishing is coming right up, so this is an excellent time to make your plan. Depending on weather, the best time for you to fish is the 3rd or 4th week of October. And, remember that the worst day of fishing is better than a day at work, and no matter what, fishing is fishing!

Reasonably Priced Salmon River Fun Day Float Trips

Our float trips on the Upper Salmon River have much the same benefits as the middle fork without spending a king's ransom and our day trips go so much faster.  We get you to the launch site in an hour, you spend the next 2 to 3 hours going through the rapids, we pull over for lunch, which takes about another hour. Then, back into the water for short float to the take out site. Your day with us will start about 9:00 AM, and you'll be back to your car or lodging by around 5:00 PM, guaranteed.

Upper Salmon River Stream Flows still good

Stream flows on the upper Salmon River between Spring Creek launch site and the Cove Creek take out are still very good! So, if you're looking to have a fun day on the river, call Kookaburra Rafting and make your reservation today! We'll treat you to grilled steak or chicken luncheon, your choice with desert and beverage. Served at the mouth of Panther Creek, at Grant Duncan's beautiful park like setting. Call us today!

Cool off in the Salmon River

These hot. dry summer days are the perfect time to float the upper Salmon River. Kookaburra Rafting will take you through the rapids and guarantee you'll get wet enough to cool down. And if per chance that doesn't do it, your guide  will let you get in the river and float down always. Come float with us, the river is still good for a fast trip through whitewater polished off with a tasty lunch.

Hang ten

 Hang ten, an expression surfers use, I believe. I'm not even sure what the expression means, but if it's floating through space for a period of time, then we can offer you a similar sensation right here on Idaho's upper Salmon River. But you gotta hurry. The current stream flows won't last forever. So, make your reservation today!
