Coeur d’ Alene Adventures feature family river trip: #1 Thing to do in the Northwest We offer this private combination family fishing adventure with whitewater rafting on the Clark Fork River for one to five people for a FULL DAY (7-8 hours). We call it the Combo. Our suggested age is 6 years old and up (4 or 5 in August through the fall season). This trip includes a licensed fishing guide, fabulous catered lunches, a full day of white water Class II and III adventure, cliff jumping, beach breaks, and fish catching for the whole family on a single private guided boat.
Your guide is trained on working with families to catch fish, be safe, and learn about the thrilling attributes of moving water and our beautiful Montana wilderness. They have two great skills: fishing and whitewater navigation which makes them amazing people and our favorite guides!
We recommend the Alberton Gorge section of the Clark Fork as an unforgettable world class family fishing adventure not to miss while living or recreating in the North Idaho or Western Montana area, or simply traveling through. The Alberton Gorge is one of Western Montana’s priceless natural treasures, as wild and beautiful today as it was when it was carved by glaciers years ago.
Because a family of people means a busy raft, we do mostly spin fishing. If you would like to try it or are an avid fly fisher and would like to fly fish this section please let your guide know and we will pack a fly rod for you! We can take a maximum of five people on this boat.
Season: This trip is offered April through November, weather and water level permitting
Boat set ups are geared for 1-5 people.
You are welcome to book more than one boat to accommodate a larger group/family! Keep in mind, we have few guides that can navigate whitewater and have the experience and license to guide fishing so plan ahead for this family fishing trip!
