Professionally Guided American River Fly Fishing and California River Rafting with Rise Up River Trips!

Rise Up River Trips is a California rafting company with a legacy that spans more than 30 years. Our team, inspired by their love of the river and canyons, are pleased to offer a variety of high quality river experiences. Our fun and entertaining professional river guides ensure safe voyages on challenging and remarkable river trips, ranging from ½ day family-style express trips, to multi-day expedition-style adventures.


In addition to classic whitewater trips, Rise Up also offers our guests special, customized, one-of-a-kind river experiences:


For adventurous anglers, we outfit an unparalleled experience, fishing wild trout on pristine, rarely fished waters on both the Middle and South Forks of the American River.  These “whitewater fishing trips” are offered as either one-day trips or as a two-day trip, camping along the riverside in serene and remote canyons while our guests enjoy two full days of exclusive fishing.  Our fishing trips are guided by experienced fishing guides who are intimately familiar with fishing on these specific rivers.


For our guests that desire simple and elegant trips without the thrills of big rapids, we offer exquisite dinner floats, providing fine riverside dining along the scenic lower Middle Fork of the American River, just a short distance from Auburn, CA.  This is a truly unique experience available exclusively to Rise Up guests.


So, if you’re looking to plan a river adventure with your family and friends or if you are planning a corporate trip, it would be our pleasure to accommodate your group and provide the specific experience that you’re looking for. Our long-term success and reputation for providing exceptional, safe, and very FUN river experiences is the result of our professional approach, our love of the rivers, and the fact that we truly care to make your river experience memorable.
