“I bought the Newell's guide for the Salmon before our run, it was a great guide... even told me I was going to flip in the rapid I flipped in!! Wow, now that's some guide book!” - Rick, Idaho Whitewater Discussion Group

Welcome Check out our new River of No Return Hats! 
Allie and I published the first edition of Idaho's Salmon River: A River Runner's Guide to the River of No Return in 2005. For the 2nd Edition (2011) we made changes on nearly every page of the guide, updating information and rebuilding our base maps. The 2014 updated 2nd Edition (now available) contains minor updates throughout and revised information on the newly formed Alder Creek and Black Creek Rapids. We remain committed to providing the best possible guide in every aspect. Idaho's Salmon River is printed locally on completely waterproof paper and the whole book floats. We hope to tread the fine line of allowing you to get the most out of your Salmon River journey without robbing you of the chance to discover. Click on the "Idaho's Salmon River" link above, or on the image to the left for more information or to order a copy.

We offer rentals and sales of Old Town canoes, BIC stand up paddle boards (SUPs), AIRE & NRS inflatable kayaks, and AIRE & NRS whitewater rafts--serving Cache Valley, Utah. Click on the "Cache Valley Canoe, SUP and Raft Sales & Rentals" link in the top menu bar for more information.
