Happy New Year to our river family!  This time of year we are watching the snow pile up in eager anticipation for the whitewater ahead.  Nothing is better for the Salmon River country than copious amounts of snow and so far old man winter is delivering (knock-on-wood)!

The natives love it.  All our river guides over at Sawtooth Mountain Guides are getting to slay, fresh un-tracked Sawtooth silk all winter long.  While our drought stricken forest are getting free refills and the Cutthroat are giddy in anticipation of all that clean, cold summer water.

We have officially embarked into the “Booking season”.  The first 3 months of the year are busy with daily phone and emails asking about trip availability and “Why Rocky?”   Due to the limited number of seats on each of our trips, and the limited number of trips, this time of year is equally as busy as the summer rafting season.

Middle Fork of the Salmon & River of No Return

Current availability on our Middle Fork of the Salmon and River of No Return trips is great.  While some of our Peak Season Dates are full,  others have great availability.   If the current snowpack is any indication 2017 is going to be a phenomenal rafting season.

In the river business we watch the weather & snowpack like baby-boomers obsess over the Dow and S&P.    Luckily for us, we have our own in-house snow specialist.  Chris Lundy, owner of Sawtooth Mountain Guides by winter, Rocky Middle Fork guide by summer.  Chris spends his winter ski guiding on the same snow that feeds the Middle Fork.

“Despite warm temperatures and a lack of snow during the past month, the snowpack at higher elevations is still hanging in there. Thanks to substantial snowfall back in December and January, many mountain weather stations are still reporting near-average snow water equivalent. Not to say we couldn’t use more snow, but we’re in much better shape than many people realize.”

Idaho rafting is like all other world class vacation destinations.  Savvy travelers seek out the shoulder season to receive the ‘Prime Season’ service at ‘Low Season ‘ rates.   The Middle Fork is no different.

Middle Fork of the Salmon

Frank Church- River of No Return Wilderness

Act fast!  We have limited availability on the following 2014 Shoulder Season Trips

June 13-17, Five Day Middle Fork  $1495/$1295 

June 22, Six Day Middle Fork $1995/$1795

August 10th & 18th , Six Day Middle Fork $1995/1795

In addition to a better price, Rocky’s shoulder season trips have their own unique draw.  Our June trips are all about the Middle Fork’s World Class Whitewater.   While our August trips offer amazing fly fishing.  In fact Rocky’s August, shoulder season trips sell out quickly because of the world -renowned dry fly fishing found on the Middle Fork in August
