Floating along the beautiful Main Salmon River.
There is so much to love about this river;

the clear green water, beautiful Ponderosa Pine Trees, white sandy beaches, and great rapids each day. It’s the perfect getaway and we would love to share it with you.

Joe Bennion has been guiding for Tour West for close to 15 years and has been a part of the river community for much longer. He loves the river and his passion for rivers radiates onto all those who travel with him. He has a vast knowledge of the rivers we run and guides on all 3 of them. You could say he is a wonderful asset to us.
He is married and has 3 beautiful daughters who also share a love of the river and join him on our trips occasionally. He is a well known and respected potter and when he is not on the river he is busy making beautiful pottery. We love all our guides and the ability they each have to share their joy and passion for rivers with our clients.
