Wapiti River Guides has been in business for over 35 years. Specializing in smaller groups and offbeat river trips. The owner is a Wildlife Biologist turned river guide. In the over 35 years in business our company has never changed hands and is still owned & run by Gary and his wife Barb. Gary is the lead guide on all our trips. We offer trips ranging from 1/2 day trips to 5 days or more on the Salmon River, the Grande Ronde River, and the Owyhee River.

Gary took us down the river personally. He has been in Riggins for a long time and knows the history of the river and area. You are not getting some college kid just making a few bucks in the summer.
