If you are looking for a get away from it all vacation in Idaho, we have a certain winner here in Salmon Idaho. Located in East Central Idaho, a vacation with Rawhide Outfitters takes you far away from traffic, noise, and every day stress.
We invite you to vacation in the beautiful Salmon River Valley where you can escape life’s every day stress. A family vacation in Salmon Idaho offers many fun activities for our visitors. We at Rawhide Outfitters’ are so happy that our guests return again and again to experience our Western hospitality. We hope that you too will join us on one of our many Idaho adventures offered on the Salmon River and in the Rocky Mountains.
Mmmhhmm, what do we have to offer you ask? Can we interest you in a smooth, scenic Salmon River float trip in the cool of the morning, or how about an afternoon float, dangling your toes in the cool of the water as you take photos of our magnificent scenery and wildlife along the way.
Feeling more adventurous, Main Salmon River Rafting day trips are sure to get your adrenaline rushing as you paddle through thrilling white water with our Salmon River guides who love their job. What does this mean for you? This means you can experience the river as you want it, with the knowledge that our guide’s have your safety as their number one priority, with you having FUN a close second. Tuck back in further on the boat, and let the paddling be done for you or feel the power as you paddle with your river guide. Expect to laugh, and laugh again as you are guided down the thrilling rapids, oh yeah the chances of you staying dry is not likely as you rip through the Salmon River Rapids. A delicious bbq picnic lunch is served riverside, where you have a chance to stretch your legs and visit the restroom, yes I meant restroom, woohoo!
Want to spend more than one day white water river rafting, then you will love our 2 or 3 day Salmon river rafting and camping trips, rafting up to 47 miles and memorable camping on the river’s edge. Fishermen, not to worry… we can get in a little fishing on these Idaho river trips.
For those of you who want to stay on dry land, we recommend horseback trail riding. Our son’s Luke and Justin know this land like the back of their hand. Experience the wonder of this land as you ride on gentle mountain horses.
Join us for a half day of horseback riding with snacks provided or full day of horseback riding with a delicious picnic lunch. Or experience the true west as the cowboys did with a 2 or 3 day horse pack trip equipped with solar showers at camp. Ok, not sure if the old cowboys had solar showers, pretty sure they took a dip in a nearby creek or mountain lake.
Fishing is in our blood, we love fishing, we catch fish, we have been quoted as “Fish Hunters” by Maverick Kickstart Outdoor Adventures Reality TV… If you love fishing, we are the river guides for you. Whether you want to wade fish, or fish from the shore, or fish from the comfort of our dory type boat you will love fishing with our fishing guides with the knowledge they want to catch fish as much as you want to reel them in! Don’t worry if you have trouble getting in and out of boats, as our new dory boat has a door on it, so you can easily walk in and out, instead of climbing in and out of the fishing boat.
If you have never fished for steelhead, we guarantee this is exciting fishing, these wily steelhead fish love putting up a fight, making this fishing experience the ultimate thrill when you reel in a feisty steelhead fish. We offer spring steelhead fishing and fall steelhead fishing on the Salmon River. During the summer we guide trout fishing in Idaho.
Salmon River fishing is great, but, sorry yes there is a but. Weather conditions do guide our fishing season. How much snow that falls during the winter and how fast the warm weather sets in melting the snow on our majestic mountain tops which then flows into the Salmon River determines our ability to fish. We will keep the blog up to date on current fishing conditions.
Accommodations in Salmon Idaho include everything from motels, relaxing Bed and Breakfast, Western lodges and stunning RV Parks and Campgrounds on the Salmon River, all within short distance from Rawhide Outfitters. From most locations we can pick you up for your adventure of the day.
