Family floats and Salmon swims are in!

August is the best time to enjoy warm summer temps and relaxing float trips on the Skykomish River! This is also the larger of the spawning seasons for pink salmon so now is the perfect time to experience the Skykomish River – raft and kayak only 1 hour from Seattle.
