Welcome to the Western Whitewater Association!

Confluence Run

  • Date : TBA
  • Place : Pittsburgh Landing 
  • Time : 9am @ Fish Trap Beach 

This event is held on the Snake River in the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area in mid-September.  The focal point is a 55 mile round-trip run down the Snake River from Pittsburg Landing to the confluence of the Salmon River and return.  The “official” run is on Saturday, but many members arrive a day or two early to fish or just relax.  Most folks stay at Pittsburg Landing campground for the event.  The Saturday run commences around 9:00 a.m. and as a rule most participants have returned by 5:00 p.m.  Saturday night the WWA hosts a complementary steak dinner and typically, a couple of the more gracious members treat the crowd to an ice cream social.

This is not an overly technical run, but there are several crucial areas where proper diligence is in order.
