River Drifters operates 7 days a week from late March through October. If you are seeking a more action-packed and thrilling time of year to go, then the spring months are the best. The spring is when the snowmelt is at its peak and the rivers have the most water in them. However, in the spring the minimum age is raised and those who want to raft this time of year must be a bit adventurous! The summertime is the best for families and those who are seeking a great way to cool off from the summer heat. Although the water flows may not be at their peak, trips like the White Salmon River will keep your adrenaline pumping all summer long!
