Canyon Outfitters History

canyon outfitters history

Canyon Outfitters was founded by George Hauptman in 1980, after his first rafting trip on the Rogue River, he decided that river life was the dream to follow. George met his bride to be, Lynette, on a Rogue River trip. George and Lynette created a partnership and an amazing company, like family with rafting trip on Hells Canyon and more for over 40 years. 

In late 2022 Tributary Whitewater acquired Canyon Outfitters, adding the trips personally curated by the Hauptmans to our incredible river experiences. Tributary, and owner Jeremiah Copper, are looking forward to continuing these trips.
