Borderline River Charters LLC owner and guide Brian Thomas, was born in Clarkston, Washington and raised in the Hells Canyon area. He received his coast guard license in 1996 while attending college at the University of Idaho. Guiding helped Brian pay college expenses towards receiving a Bachelors of Science degree in 1998. After college he worked with his degree in his field of study and continued to guide. Furthermore, he also spent a short term operating Jet Boats and guiding in Alaska on the Talkeetna and Susitna Rivers. Brian’s focus has been primarily on the Snake River in Hells Canyon and the Lower Salmon River in Idaho. Brian has been fortunate to have extensive opportunities to guide and operate boat on the entire 115 mile stretch of the Snake River in Hells Canyon from Lewiston, Idaho to Hells Canyon Dam. Exploring the outdoors and giving people their desired Hells Canyon experience have been a big part of Brian’s lifestyle for the better part of 15 years. Hobbies include spending time on the river with the family, hunting, fishing, team roping, and helping coach little league sports for his two boys.
