Brand New this year: fall chinook salmon season on the Salmon River.
The season opened on Aug 24, 2019 and will remain open until Oct 31, 2019. Daily limit: 6 adults of which only one may have an adipose fin. There is no limit on Jacks.
We charge $200 per day per person (8 hours of driftboat fishing time); $125 for a half day.
Note: Steelhead trips are at the same rate. Fall season: Sept 1 – Dec 31, 2019. The limit is 1 fish per day. Possession – 3 fish.
Sept 21, 2019 – Jan 31, 2020 Bag limit 8 per day.
We run day trips for the same rate as fishing trips. These trips can also be combined with fishing at no additional cost. Dogs are welcome. We also run 5 and 6 day trips for more serious hunting and fishing.

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.”
Available: signed copies at our shop, and/or kindle version or paperback at Amazon.
