Prepare for Your Trip in the Salmon River Canyons

Prepare for Your Trip in the Salmon River Canyons

We are excited to take you down the river!  Preparation is key to a successful river trip, although we like to think of ourselves as all-inclusive, we can't all just spend all day on the river in the nude and / or with out a camera.  Below is a list of what we can bring, and personal gear for a successful trip.


White Pine Outfitters provides each of our guests with:

  • Coast Guard Approved/Type V Lifejacket,
  • Eating utensils (including plates, bowls, and flatware),
  • A wall tent with a wood burning stove provided to dry out gear and for sleeping, cots and sleeping bags 
  • Chairs 
  • Shuttle transportation
  • One large and one small waterproof bag
  • Tupperware for small breakable items,
  • Gourmet meals prepared by the crew each day

For designated fishing specific trips White Pine provides, flies, rods, reels, and other consumables (tippet, leader, tips etc.) required for fishing.


Cool weather can occur on any trip regardless of the time of year, it can be quite chilly when it's overcast, breezy, or raining, even in August.  The right clothing can make your river trip comfortable even in unfavorable weather.  Clothing on a river trip must have the ability to keep you warm even if it gets wet.  Synthetic fabrics such as polypropylene, capilene, Synchilla, and polyester pile will keep you warm when wet and will dry quickly.  Wool will keep you warm when wet, but takes longer to dry.  Cotton does not keep you warm when it is wet, but it can keep you cool when it’s hot.  Warm and sunny weather is more likely to occur on a summer trip down the Salmon River, cold and rainy weather will be more likely in the fall and winter.
