Question regarding handgun carry while rafting on the main salmon river

Will be coming into Idaho for a white water rafting trip in the near future and was wondering what the laws are regarding carrying while on the main salmon river. The company we are rafting with have mention that it should not be a problem, but would like some confirmation directly from fish and game. No hunting is intended while navigating the river, and I hold a valid concealed handgun permit that is recognized by Idaho. Thank you.

Answer

You can carry a handgun while rafting.
