Astro Bug/10202679

SALT LAKE CITY - AstroBug -- What a cool thought! River rafting through the evergreen forests in the mountain air during the heat of summer.

Rippling into late summer and fall 2022, Western River Expeditions reports an excellent choice of dates and departures on three mountain rivers in the Pacific Northwest - options for rafting in Idaho ( and rafting in Oregon ( These are the Salmon River in Idaho, the Snake River through Hells Canyon on the Idaho/Oregon border and the Rogue River in southern Oregon.

Along with refreshing, crystal-clear waters, Western River Expeditions underscores six reasons clients are well advised to book adventures this season on these mountain rivers.

●       Water levels are good and as of mid-summer stand at normal due to a very wet, cool spring.

●       Ideal temperatures circulate in these alpine river regions. The average daily high is around 74°F on the Rogue from mid-June to mid-September. The hottest month of the year on the Salmon is July with an average high of 84°F and low of 50°F.

●       The 2022 fire season looks favorable, again thanks to an above-average moist and cool spring and early summer.

●       The fish are biting! Fishing the Salmon River is best in summer and fall. Steelhead and Chinook salmon and bull and cutthroat trout are prevalent. The Rogue is renowned for having some of the West Coast's most reliable salmon and steelhead fishing.

●       There's a wide choice of departures still available for the remainder of the season.

●       Lodge-to-lodge options are available for non-campers on Rogue rafting adventures. "We get that camping isn't everyone's cup of tea," says Brandon Lake, Vice President and CMO of Western River Expeditions ( "Some prefer to enjoy the pristine wildness of the river and canyons during the day then tuck into a real bed, instead of sleeping under canvass at night."
