Kris Belozer

Kris Belozer is one of the newer members of the Helfrich Outfitters Team but his boating skills and experience are much greater than his age would lead you to believe. Kris is an accomplished drift boater, fishing guide, rafting guide and whitewater kayaker. Growing up as the son of a river outfitter, Kris leaned the art of boating and guiding at a young age. At 9 Kris started running a baggage boat on the Deschutes River and once he was 18 he started his guiding career. Kris works with his dad Jon Belozer at Belozer’s Whitewater Fishing on the upper and lower Deschutes River in Oregon. Kris started working with the HRO crew in 2011 and is on the fall Rogue steelhead fishing crew. He also guides for HRO on the Main Salmon and Middle Fork of the Salmon in the summers.

When Kris is not guiding, he will be found either snowboarding or kayaking waterfalls and exploring new whitewater sections. Kris isn't afraid to travel to find his next adventure.  His latest excursion took him on a kayaking waterfall tour around Chile.  These stories and many more make a day in the boat with Kris very entertaining. 

Kris is known to make some daring moves in his kayak but is a smart and safe river guide with guests.

Why Helfrich

When people ask who they entrust their river vacation with, HELFRICH River Outfitters comes up first every time.Not only are we the oldest and most experienced company on the rivers we specialize in, but our safety record has been flawless since the beginning.

In 1925 when Prince Helfrich first started guiding on the McKenzie, he had an edge on other fishing guides because he added value to his trips with extra things like frying the fish his clients caught on the river bank or bringing one of Marjorie Helfrich’s home made pies to share at lunch time. The concept of added value to our trips has continued for 87 years, and is adopted a Helfrich standard.

Now into our fourth generation, our trips continue to improve and evolve.We have and will continue to always make the trips the best that they can be for our clients. The safety and comfort of our clients is our first concern.

The experience of our crew members and their accommodating and friendly attitudes makes our guests know they are in good hands.
