10% Discount on Prime CRE 2020 Launch Dates

Happy winter from a snow covered sleepy Idaho! Deep within the Idaho Rockies, at the Confluences River Expeditions basecamp, all the river gear is packed away and the boathouse is under a couple feet of snow. All the guides are off enjoying their winters and our hometown of Cascade Idaho has fallen into a cozy rhythm of winter life.

Make time to play in Salmon Idaho

Here are a few ways that we play in Salmon Idaho. Think about adding one of these fun activities before or after your river trip.

Salmon is the home of the Sacajawea Center, where you can learn more about Sacajawea, the other members of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and their experiences in the Lemhi Valley. In addition to the Interpretive Center, the grounds have hiking trails, tipi replicas and beautiful vistas of the Continental Divide.

Father and Son Fishing

Best Steelhead Fisherman Contest

We took a father and son fall Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River last Saturday and you could feel their excitement before they ever stepped foot in the boat. 81 year old Kelly and his son, Greg, had been planning this trip for ten months – it was one they could mark off the bucket list. Little did we know that they had a best steelhead fisherman contest on the line.

Disconnect to Reconnect

Take a River Trip – Disconnect to Reconnect

We are connected in today’s world, stuck in a barrage of texts, social media, email and the internet that demands constant attention.
