The Grande Ronde River target species: rainbow trout in early summer and Steelhead and rainbow trout in the fall!

The Grande Ronde River offers some of the best fly fishing west side of the Mississippi! This is a 40-mile roadless section which is best run in 4 or 5 days. The early summer dates will be running during the peak golden stone fly season, and the fall is during the peak October caddis hatch. We will also encounter some white water making this trip fun and exciting.  Imagine catching wild big trout by day and telling stories next to the fire with a stiff cocktail swapping stories about all the fish you thought you should have landed each night!  Even bigger imagine getting back up and doing that again for another 3 days!
We will be working over water less thoroughly with the 4-day option but still covering the same water as the 5-day.  This river offers amazing geology, flora, fauna, and world-class camping under the stars. This is a fantastic way to connect with family and friends.
Four-day trips are perfect for anglers needing a retreat to unplug and recharge. This journey allows all of us the ability to build a deeper connection with the places we guide. We look forward to sharing these experiences with you. 

*Price listed is Per Person in group, call us to customize your trip.
Listed price does not include a customary 15-20% tip.

      Preparing for your Trip

      LIABILITY WAIVER 

      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.  

      BEVERAGES

      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).

      Travel Insurance / Life Flight Insurance

      Your pre-trip package will provide more information on the rigors of the trip you have chosen. Even though we make every effort to insure a safe trip for everyone, we strongly recommend that you protect yourself, your belongings, and your vacation by purchasing a traveler’s insurance policy. Should you have to cancel your trip at the last minute due to illness or injury, a trip cancellation policy will cover your non-refundable payments in most cases. If you become ill or injured while on a river trip, evacuation may be prolonged, difficult and expensive. Many trip insurance policies cover such events. If you choose not to purchase travel insurance you will be asked to sign a waiver. Baggage and cameras are carried entirely at the owner’s risk, and White Pine Outfitters Inc. accepts no responsibility for lost, damaged, or delayed property. We recommend TRAVELEX.
