Middle Fork of the Salmon River, Idaho.

Welcome to OARS IDAHO

In 1972, Martin Litton sent a young dory guide to Lewiston to expand his fledgling river company, Grand Canyon Dories, into new territory. Since then, OARS Dories has been operating first-class Idaho river trips on the Snake River through Hells Canyon, the Middle Fork of the Salmon, Main Salmon, the Gorges of the Lower Salmon River and the Wild & Scenic Owyhee River.
