One great opportunity for fun is stopping at the old Gold Mine before pounding into Pine Creek rapids on the Salmon, River. A short stop for a historic adventure will allow rafters to pan for gold, walk through the old ghost town, and learn about the history of gold mining days at Shoup Idaho.
Here's a little "pre-walkthrough" for you to enjoy.

We are Kookaburra Rafting, LLC. We do float trips for families on the Salmon River. Some of our family is located at the Greyhouse Inn Bed and Breakfast South of Salmon, Idaho near 12 mile at milepost 293. We can provide lodging for you while you visit the Salmon, Idaho area, but our main function is guiding river trips on Idaho's Salmon River. We are the Salmon River Outfitter of choice!
The way spring weather is behaving, we can expect spring runoff to last a good part of the summer, at least well into the month of July. Last week's report on snow water equivalent (for what it's worth) for the Salmon Basin showed it to be 188 percent of average. So, while supplies last, please call us at 1-888-654-4386 to make your reservation for a 1 day or multi-day trip.
Ever heard of brownwater rafting? It might be common in some places of the world, but not here in the Idaho Salmon River country. We learn to expect it every year! Brown spray, angry and brimming the banks, but it doesn't last forever. At this moment, we have spring runoff on the Salmon, but very soon the river will calm down, clear up and be right for recreation. The Salmon Basin snowpack is 155 per cent of average which promises great whitewater rafting for the summer of 2011.
If you crave excitement and like whitewater rafting, expect 2011 to be a banner year. There is so much white-stuff left to melt, and so far, cool spring temperatures have done little to speed up the process. Salmon River runoff could be late this year, but guaranteed there will be enough fast water to make your trip exciting.
