About Us

The Pend Oreille Rowing and Paddling Association exists to promote safe and responsible rowing in the Pend Oreille River valley of Idaho and Washington. We are located in Priest River Idaho and currently row from the Priest River Recreation Area “The Mudhole” in Priest River, Idaho.

 

Our Mission

PORPA is a non-profit organization that exists to promote safe and responsible rowing in the Pend Oreille River valley of Idaho and Washington. We base our operations at The Mudhole Campground in Priest River. We have a fleet of six rowing shells and have access to two more.

 

PORPA 2021 activity plans

PORPA plans are in place to start activities following our COVID protocol and USRowing guidelines as soon as water flow is considered safe at the Mudhole. On a case by case basis we will consider launching boats on other bodies of water earlier.

We now have 7 singles and 2 doubles available in our fleet (see PORPA FLEET for details). Our large boats might have a chance to be launched at some time in 2021, USRowing guidelines and local conditions and regulations permitting.

Ladies' night will continue this season every Wednesday once the Mudhole is open.

 

2021 Priest River Sprints

Together with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, PORPA is gearing up for August 21st and the first Priest River Sprints to be held at the Mudhole. It will be a day of fun for anybody wanting to race with rowing singles, kayaks, canoes, SUPs or rafts.

Join tribal members and experts in learning more about the relationship the Kalispel people have with the Pend Oreille and other rivers in the area.
