Canyons River Company is one of the few Middle Fork outfitters based out of beautiful McCall, Idaho. Canyons was founded in 1985 by white water legend, Les Bechdel, and in 2010 the outfit was passed on to Greg Mcfadden, a long time Canyons boatman. Bechdel’s history of first descents, international kayaking championships, and publications about river safety, has shaped Canyons River Company into one of the industry’s most trusted destination kayaking outfitters. Aside from sharing all the magic that the Frank Church Wilderness and Middle Fork has to offer, Canyons guides are known for their paddling expertise.
Along with Middle Fork River Expeditions, Canyons River Company is one of the few Idaho outfitters offering an extended 11-12 day Middle / Main Salmon River combo trip; a great experience for those who need the full Salmon River corridor meal deal. If you can’t make it onto one of MFRE’s launch dates, Canyons River Company is an exceptional alternative.
See you in the Middle,
