Preparing for your Trip
Due to the potential risks of the outdoors, everyone is required to sign a standard liability release form sent in a confirmation at least thirty days before the start of your trip, acknowledging awareness of and acceptance of the risks associated with the trip you have selected. The guides and White Pine Outfitters will attempt to meet all schedules, but assume no responsibility for inconvenience or expense due to delays or changes.
HEALTH AND AGE You should be reasonably healthy because river trips require a certain amount of physical exertion. We suggest a minimum age appropriate for each of our specific trips. There is no upper age limit. Pregnant women and individuals with heart trouble should get physician approval before embarking on any river trip. Persons with handicaps and challenges are welcome on our trips, we will need to talk with you to be sure we can meet your special requirements and needs for safety.
RECOMMENDED CLOTHING (AVOID COTTON)
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.
FISHING & HUNTING LICENSES
If you plan on fishing you will need to purchase an OREGON fishing license.
If fishing for steelhead, purchase an additional OREGON steelhead/salmon permit.
Purchase these licenses online at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife before your trip and include license numbers in the liability form.
Dehydration is always a concern on a river trip, thus we encourage you to drink lots of water and we ask that you bring two unbreakable water bottles that hold a minimum of one quart each. Juice and coffee will always be available at breakfast and tea (black & herbal), and hot chocolate will be available at camp in the mornings and evenings. Gatorade mix and water will be available at all meals (including lunch) and whenever we are at camp. White Pine Outfitters provides limited amounts of beer and soda (approximately 2 cans per person per day). You may bring as much additional beer and soda as you want, but we do request that you buy these in aluminum cans. White Pine Outfitters also provides a modest amount of wine to have with dinners. If you wish to bring your own favorite wines or if you want to bring hard liquor you are welcome to do so. We will provide a safe place to store these glass containers. A liquor store is located in Moscow close to the hotel and is open Monday - Saturday (Closed Sundays). Wine and beer can be purchased in any grocery store (Winco is located next to the hotel and is open 24 hours a day).
