Why the Salmon

The Salmon River, also known as "The River of No Return," is the longest free flowing river in the lower 48. The Salmon’s headwaters are in the mountains of south central Idaho, and the river runs about 420 miles until it reaches its confluence with the Snake River along the Oregon border. In 1980, the Salmon River received the “Wild and Scenic” designation from the US Department of the Interior. Less than .05% of the rivers in the US have received this designation. When you visit a “Wild and Scenic River” you can expect a quality river experience. From the crystal-clear water, to the abundant wildlife, you have a river actively preserved in its natural form.
The 45 miles of the Salmon River from North Fork to the Corn Creek, includes various classes of whitewater. From the calm waters of class I, to the thrilling whitewater of class IV, SRAC offers something for everyone. If you have always wanted to try something new, this is a great environment to try rowing a raft, SUP or paddling a kayak.
