Oregon Rivers

Driftboat Trips on the Salmon Middle Fork
Middle Fork Salmon trips are run July-August, with exceptional Cutthroat trout using both fly and spin gear.

In addition to our Middle Fork Salmon drift fishing trips we also offer rafting trips and scenic drift boat trips.

Don't forget to bring the essentials such as binoculars, a camera, rain gear, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and beverages. View our packing list here.

The classic high-rise rocker bottom McKenzie drift boats we use have been improved upon over the past 80 years for use on this famous river. Not only can they run whitewater, but in the hands of our able guides these stable boats can quietly and precisely maneuver into the smallest nooks and crannies to find the allusive big ones.

Each drift boat carries 3 people, 2 fly fisherman and 1 guide.

Top quality equipment is supplied by us, but in the event that you have a lucky rod or certain setup that you prefer we encourage all fisherman to bring along their favorite equipment, whether it's fly or spinning gear.

We will schedule all our trips for the times that work for our guests. If you want to fish late or early that's fine with us, but we will always give our suggestions for best results.

Don't forget to bring the essentials such as rain gear, an Oregon fishing license, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and beverages.
