Getting There And Away

The California Salmon is located in one of the most remote areas of California. Please give us a call if you have any questions about transportation. We will send you very detailed travel options with your confirmation pack. We meet near Somes Bar, California.

If you fly in the closest commercial airports are in Redding, California (RDD) and Medford, Oregon (MFR). From there you can rent a car. Both airports are about 3 hours from our meeting spot.

Medford is a wonderful little airport and there are more and more direct flights every year. The airport is serviced by Horizon Air, United Express, Delta Connection, Sky West, and Allegiant Air.  These carriers offer approximately 60 flights daily direct to and from San Francisco, Portland, Eugene, Seattle, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Las Vegas, and Salt Lake City.

People also often fly into San Francisco and add a trip along the coast into their itinerary. This is an amazing and beautiful area; please call us if you need any planning help.

Over half our guests drive and we give detailed directions to our meeting place when you reserve your trip. The drives are beautiful and many times guests add an extra day or two to see the Redwoods or the California or Oregon coasts. General driving ties are shown below:
