Why Helfrich


Prince Helfrich on the River in 1942Dave, Ken and Kelsey Helfrich - Three Generations on the RiverWhen people ask who they entrust their river vacation with, HELFRICH River Outfitters comes up first every time.Not only are we the oldest and most experienced company on the rivers we specialize in, but our safety record has been flawless since the beginning. 

In 1925 when Prince Helfrich first started guiding on the McKenzie, he had an edge on other fishing guides because he added value to his trips with extra things like frying the fish his clients caught on the river bank or bringing one of Marjorie Helfrichs home made pies to share at lunch time. The concept of added value to our trips has continued for 87 years, and is adopted a Helfrich standard. 
Now into our fourth generation, our trips continue to improve and evolve.We have and will continue to always make the trips the best that they can be for our clients. The safety and comfort of our clients is our first concern.
