Went rafting with River Drifters in Husum. I have been rafting a number of times before but this was the best location for the combination of good scenery, nice weather (in the summer warm weather and cold water), and quality rafting. It has a good number of different good rapids with many challenging 3 - 4 rapids but nothing too intense. The Husum Falls was an awesome experience and was definitely worth it. The falls are only open when the water flow is low enough which is near mid summer. The rest of the year the rafts have to pull out before the falls and go back in downstream.

We rafted with Wet Planet and had a GREAT time!

We took the 1/2 day trip over the Memorial Day weekend (Thanks to all of our Men and Women in the Armed Forces...).

Wet Planet took care of everything: All we had to do was show up and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime!

I've lived in the Pacific Northwest too long to not have done this. This is NOT a passive ride. You MUST be willing to get wet, listen to your guide's instructions, and give it your all.

Great fun with white water on the White Salmon river. Class 3-4.. up to 6 (depending if they're running the water fall). Just need swim suits and personal items. The companies provide the wet suits. Beautiful basalt carved route. 1 hr 15 min from Portland which is not common to have such great rafting so near a great city. I've used Wet Planet and River Drifters, (although the former the most). Hint: take the splash guards they offer over the wet suit when the water is 40 degrees.

Now that Condit dam has been removed the river is free flowing and is simply amazing how its changed for the better. White water rafting is excellent and the fly fishing will be amazing once the fish return.
