SANTIAM RIVER RAFT FISHING OVERVIEW

The summer steelhead are re-known on this river, but we mainly target the rainbow trout (and occasionally get “lucky”).  The trout on this stretch are abundant, beautiful, and offer a great thrill for the novice fisherman or the advanced angler.  Your day will start out around 8:30am meeting on the lower Santiam River.  We will load up into a vehicle with all the gear and drive up about 8 miles to our starting point where we rig, do a safety talk and go over details for the day to get on the fish!  We normally float and fish from about 9-2:30pm where will end up back at your car.  We will provide snacks and water on the river.

As with all activities, there are inherent risks associated with rafting. This is one reason to go on a guided trip, as our staff's job is to minimize said risk and make your trip a memorable experience.

The pacific northwest is blessed with great water all year round. That said, those who want a more action-packed adventure should try rafting during the spring when rain and snow melt bring the flows up. Summer flows are great for families and those interested in a more relaxing experience. That said, with many sections to choose from, exhilarating whitewater can be found all summer long.

Every participant needs to fill out a waiver. You can find it in your booking confirmation email or fill on out here.
