Snake River Guide Still Missing After Boat Capsizes

Robert Merrill, and guide for the Three Rivers Ranch Orvis Fly Shop in Driggs, Idaho, is still missing two days after he and his clients were tossed from their driftboat on the South Fork of the Snake River Wednesday night. According to the story by Cory Hatch of the Jackson Hole Daily, “The clients escaped the river near the accident, but Merrill continued downstream…. ‘They were up against the bank where [the river] goes right next to the road and hit a … tree and capsized,’ said Sgt. Karl Casperson, a member of the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office Aquatic Rescue Team.”
