Roy Akins

Licensed Guide/Lead Boatman/Trip Leader

Guide Status: Active


One of the premier whitewater and fishing guides in the Northwest, Roy is Shelley’s younger Brother and took his first river trip with us when he was 15 on the Murtaugh. ( Not sure his parents, my in-laws have ever forgiven us for that) Since then he has had the river bug, big time. Roy’s knowledge of river systems in the Northwest and especially Idaho, have him listed as one of the top guides in the USA. Roy used to spend his winters in South American on some of the biggest rapids in the world. Roy and  Karen with their children Boden and  Everlee prefer to stay in Riggins and fish for Salmon and Steelhead. Roy is one of the premier fishing guides in Idaho and is in demand almost every day that fish are running up.
