One of our favorite ways to explore the Central Idaho wilderness is by boat. A wet and wild trip down the whitewater rapids of the Salmon River is an unforgettable experience, and White Otter Outdoor Adventures provides some of the best river adventures in the Sawtooths! It’s a great way to spend an afternoon on a warm summer day before heading back to Redfish Lake Lodge for a relaxing evening.

Scenic River Trips
A Scenic River Float is the perfect way for your entire family to take a relaxing cruise down the Salmon River while taking in the gorgeous scenery of the Sawtooth Mountains. A journey down the crystal clear water is incredibly tranquil, and you might even be able to spot some wildlife weaving its way through the pine and spruce trees on the banks. The cool water of the Salmon River feels great on a warm summer day.

The fast-flowing waters of the Salmon River offer some of the top salmon fishing in the United States. White Otter Adventures gives you test your fishing skills. Chinook and steelhead salmon are just a couple of the common species you’ll have the opportunity to catch while you’re out on the river. Your White Otter Adventures guide provides guests with rods, lunches, and other necessary fishing equipment for a fun and exciting day on the water!
