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.
