AS OF: MAY 25, 2021
Attention: Having been vaccinated, we are back open for business after time off due to Covid.
Fortunately, it appears with the available vaccines it will be safe enough for us to begin running trips again this spring/summer for those who have been vaccinated. Hopefully people will continue to follow the necessary community precautions until enough people have gotten their shots to reach herd immunity.
In the meantime, while waiting to get back out on the river there is always an option to get one of my two volume books to read up on our area before your trip:
Vol 1 Idaho’s Salmon River Chronicles
Reflections of a River Guide Gary Lane’s Oar Lore
Amazon customer review:
“Those of us who have run rivers with Gary know him to be a superb yarn spinner while around a campfire and while floating down Western waterways. This book is part biography, part compendium of river lore, and part call for an ecologically minded effort to enjoy and preserve all the grandeur of our natural wilderness. This volume will appeal to those who know Gary but also to those who haven’t yet had the pleasure of befriending and learning from one of the most interesting guys you’ll ever meet, on or off the river. There’s a lot here to enjoy.”
Vol 2. Idaho’s Salmon River Chronicles
Reflections of a River Guide
Tales of Fishing, Chukar Hunting, and Natural History
Gary Lane’s Oar Lore
This book promotes a more earth/watear-centric worldview, and it serves as a clarion call to not over-love the Blue Dot we all call home. It will have a special appeal to river guides who often facilitate experiences that can have a life-changing impact on their guests. Such is the beauty and efficacy of River Medicine.
Available: signed copies at our shop, and/or kindle version or paperback at Amazon.

www.MountainAngels.com – This is a site to a long-time-ago river friend and his creative silversmith art, along with other cool stuff. His Campfire Tales and River Songs with Johnny Buffalo is a CD I listen to often. It gets you back on the river even when you are not on the river.
