Speaking of lunch, she's been making potato salad, cold slaw (not homemade), strawberry shortcake (homemade), and for your sandwich, artisan breads: walnut and cranberry, or cheddar with deli meats and Swiss, plus condiments like sliced tomatoes, onions and avocados. It's a cold lunch, perfect for warm summer days on the river.

Pine Creek Rapids

Montana's importance to our rafting business

I cannot express how important the people of Montana are to our rafting business here in Idaho. In particular, our closeness to the Bitterroot Valley, provides easy access for guests to hop across the border and raft the Salmon River with Kookaburra Rafting and drive home the same day. Thank you Montana and the Bitterroot Valley. We are here for you.

Salmon River Raft Trips

We guarantee our Salmon River Raft Trips to be a lasting memory for you and your family. Please come to the Salmon River country of East Central Idaho and spend the day with us, Kookaburra Rafting, on Idaho's main Salmon River. We give you a choice of river float, either fast water with hairy rapids or, a scenic float on slower water, if you prefer. Due to a great snow pack this season, we expect a better than normal spring runoff, which equates to a more exciting white water river experience. Give a a call at 888--654-4386 and reserve today!

Steelhead Fishing on the Salmon River!

February roars in like old man winter and left us with 2 feet of snow and today we are getting some more. After getting all the driveways and trails to cabins and animals we decided we would go snow shoeing, then it started to blow in again. Maybe tomorrow.

Last fall we went scouting for elk and deer, saw allot of beautiful country and wolf tracks it was a little unnerving. But it was a great day to be out in the wilds of Salmon, Idaho. I took some pictures I will share them with you.
