- New – My first book (finally) published in March of 2018
- Idaho’s Salmon River Chronicles
- – Reflections of a River Guide – Gary Lane’s Oar Lore
“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.”

Note about Salmon Season:
The harvest share this year will be a range of 2500 to 4200 chinook. The season will be open 7 days a week and the daily limit is 4 fish, only 2 of which can be adults. While a little better than last years run, not a banner catch is expected. However, like our steelhead season, the catching was quite good as there were less fishermen, so may apply to less than stellar press coverage for salmon season too. Less fishermen mean more fish for the folks that actually show up.
No Oregon Trips this year. Sorry.
