I am Dawson Palm and I have been rafting on the Middle Fork of the Salmon since 2013. Like many of the other guides, it started with a pleasure trip, then learning to row and set up camp, ultimately earning my guide’s license and more recently learning to row the large sweep boat that carries our gear down the river. I can’t think of a better way to have fun, work hard and share an incredible experience with others than to row guests down the Middle Fork. Off the river, I pursue my other outdoor passions, as well as a love of flying, recently earning my Multi Engine Commercial Pilot with Instrument Rating and a Type Certificate to be Pilot in Command of Citation Jets. When I am not on the river, I fly as a contract pilot for private corporate flight departments in Citation Fives and Sixes.
I love being on the river and it will be great to see you this summer!
