Helfrich outfitters is top notch. All of the guides are experienced on the Rogue River and provide a great experience. It is a must do Oregon experience. This was my third trip with Helfrich on the Rogue and I will be back for many more! During this crazy COVID year, it was a much needed getaway with good friends.

Any river trip is a great trip, but the Helfrich family trips are absolutely outstanding. The organization, pre-planning, recommendations, meals, guides, accommodations -- everything is perfect as long as you remember that you are out in the most beautiful parts of our country and are willing to enjoy the opportunity. In other words, mirrors, curling irons, luxurious tubs, etc., are not the norm. It's an opportunity to experience a more rustic lifestyle that sometimes takes you back to "the way it was the."

We have taken several trips with them. They always do an excellent job and treat guests like royalty. You don't have to be an expert flyfisher to go on these trips. The crew is very patient and will teach you what you need to know.

We had a great 5 day trip with Ken Helfrich and crew. They were attentive to our groups' needs, and they met our expectations. Highly recommend them for any of their river trips in the northwest.
