What a great trip I had this week with MRO! The accommodations, the boats and the equipment were excellent! Jess provided a great experience and even kept me out a little longer in the day to help me get that one last fish! The time on the river was beautiful including viewing otters, bald eagles, elk and even a lynx.... More

The guide and outfitters were very welcoming, however our boat was filled and I actually didn't fish because I felt there were enough people casting lines into the water and didn't need to cause everyone to squeeze one more person in. Not really what I expected. I expected more individualized attention for the money.

We are very happy that your guide was welcoming! We work hard to make sure everyone has a great time. I'm sorry that you felt the jet boat did not have enough room for you to feel comfortable in fishing with everyone else. If your looking for a more individualized attention we recommend our drift boats. They are a private... More

The true test of an outstanding travel company is how they respond to glitches in a trip. MRO could have easily cancelled our highly anticipated family vacation with everything that was happening during our weekend. But with fires raging around us and feared evacuations in the town that the company was based, Mountain River Outfitters never let go of their... More

We did a full day trip down the Salmon River. The rafting company is great, I would highly recommend booking with Mountain River for a whitewater excursion. I wasn't sure how our girls would like it but they had a smile on their face the whole time! It was such an amazing trip. Dane was our guide and he was... More

We took a full day trip down the Salmon River. The rafting company was well organized and the "boat drivers" were so experienced. They were enthralling to watch as they carefully maneuvered through the rapids making for a thrilling, exciting and beautiful trip down the Salmon River.

We took the half day trip on the Salmon river and had such a great time. Bryce was our guide and he was full of interesting info about the river and the area. He was also very experienced and we never felt unsafe- lots of fun rapids and things to see along the way.
