Why Choose Idaho River Adventures?

Idaho River Adventures is the culmination of a lifetime spent in Idaho’s wilderness on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, Main Salmon River, and Lower Salmon River. As a fifth-generation Idahoan, Dustin comes from a family with a long and rich history of farming, ranching, logging, and recreating in Idaho. Some of his earliest memories are fishing, hiking, and exploring the wild places and rivers where Idaho River Adventures now operates. During his college years, Dustin was introduced to guiding and soon realized it was his life’s calling. The ability to share a love of these wild places with diverse groups of people remains Dustin’s passion.

“I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with the most highly regarded outfitters and guides in the industry. My hope is to provide you with the best and most memorable trip of your life. A week on a river can truly be transformative. It was (and continues to be) for me.”
