Hells Canyon Rafting Trip Announcement

Hells Canyon white water rafting trips

We are excited to announce the newest addition to our wilderness whitewater rafting excursions – 4 days of rafting, camping, fishing and more on the Snake River in Idaho. Hells Canyon rafting trips are unique and very popular with private rafting communities.  

Tributary Whitewater has acquired Canyon Outfitters in Halfway, Oregon. Canyon Outfitters was started in 1980 by George Hauptman, was joined by his adventurous partner, Lynette, in 1986. They have been running Idaho rafting trips on the Snake River ever since. The rafting trips offered by Canyon Outfitters were personally curated by the Hauptmans, who not only provided fantastic experiences to their guests, but also long lasting friendships. We look forward to merging the Snake River operations from Canyon Outfitters into the Tributary Family.

Fishing on the Snake River provides excellent fishing and houses some of the best fishing in the country with trout, bass, catfish, steelhead and sturgeon in abundance. Our Fishing trips on Hells Canyon are perfect for all levels. During the summer bass, trout, and sturgeon are caught. In the fall the steelhead arrive in the river, chukar hunting trips start late September and run through the end of October.
