For whitewater dory lovers, there’s no better place than Idaho. The state’s miles of wild free-flowing rivers are home to the country’s deepest gorges and some of the best big-water rapids. In 1972, renowned conservationist and Grand Canyon Dories founder Martin Litton asked Curt Chang if he’d like to take some boats and a crew to Hells Canyon. After an initial scouting trip, Curt started up the Idaho operation out of his family’s backyard in Clarkston, WA. Since then Curt has fostered a community of river guides leading ultimately to a family of boaters who care deeply about our rivers, running good trips, and the legacy of dories in Idaho. Dory Land is a film that takes an inside look at the community Curt Chang has built in Idaho around wooden boats and free flowing rivers.
