Snowpack at 157% of Normal!

March 30th, 2017

With Snowpack at 157% of Normal, expect some awesome whitewater rafting this summer on the Middle Fork of the Salmon and Main Stem of the Salmon Rivers.  The SWE or Snow Water Equivelant is the highest it has been since 1013 when they first began records.  A lot depends on how the snow melts fort the watershed, but the rivers usually hit peak flows around June 1.  We have a June 2 launch which will be a lot of fun on some high water!!  Come join us!

Erik Weihenmayer kayaks the Salmon River with MFRE

February 28th, 2017

Come check it out and see his new book about kayaking the Grand Canyon a couple months after he kayaked with MFRE.

It was the most inspiring river trip I have ever been on in my entire rafting career.  He is an amazing man.  His family was along as well and we had the best time and the most fun. I will always remember my friend and co-guide Kelly McGrath mooning a jet boat on our last night while on the river and the jet boat turned around adn slid sprayed us with a huge wall of water that missed he prime rib dinner table by a foot.  We just missed a big disaster.  But Erik nailed every rapid on the trip.  He had the help of 3 other kayakers, one in front adn 2 behind.  The one in front would pick the line and the two in front would talk to Erik with an ear piece of where to brace and paddle.  It was amazing to watch.  We ran safety below the rapids.

Grand Canyon of the Salmon River

May 16th, 2013

The Main Salmon River in the Wild and Scenic Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness should be changed to the “Grand Canyon of the Salmon River” as it’s canyon walls are deeper than Grand Canyon in Arizona and also the second deepest in all of USA. Only Hell’s Canyon is deeper. Main Salmon outfitters are currently coming out with a marketing strategy to give this canyon it’s true name, the Grand Canyon of the Salmon River.

Family Adventure Travel on the Middle Fork Salmon RIver in Idaho

The River Company

April 17th, 2013

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,

Sparrow
