Mackay Bar Lodge, an outstanding back country guest ranch along the salmon river. Operated by Joni and Buck Dewey. A beautiful outdoor paradise for Hunting and Fishing as well as a relaxing lodge. Buck Dewey is a very experienced guide and will work very hard to find the game you are seeking. My opinion, be prepared for rough country you... More

Our family had the best vacation ever with Buck, Joni and Dax and of course the rest of the crew. From the time Buck picked us up until the last cast for the big one we had a grand time. From the historic viewing of mines and homesteads to the jet boat experience everything was top notch. The food was... More

I took my first overnight Steelhead fishing trip with Mackay Bar in March of 2014 and loved it so much I did it again this spring! This time convincing my two good friends and Uncle to join me. All 4 of us caught big Steelhead, both days! Buck and Joni are absolutely amazing people and go out of their way... More

Mackay Bar Guest Ranch is top notch when it comes to steelhead fishing. If you're looking for an outdoors hunting/fishing getaway I highly recommend this place. The service is phenomenal and the setting is amazing. We caught some monster steelhead and it was an awesome experience! Hope to go back soon.

My wife and i were staying at The Shore Lodge in McCall (another 5-star plus experience). A couple of weeks before arrival I challenged the head concierge, Katie, to come up with a unique and memorable experience for my wife and I for our 25th wedding anniversary. That led to several solid ideas and with me selecting a day at... More

What an amazing place managed by even more amazing people, who welcome you in with wide open arms and treat you better than your own family. So many wonderful things to see and experience in a setting that is truly spectacular. Throw in great food, jet boats, unending wildlife, scenery, and hospitality and you have a destination not to be... More

We had a family reunion here, and all I can say is "What an amazing place". Actually, I can saw a lot more than that. We really did not know what to expect...yes...we did read their literature, reviews, etc. But all the reading materials and pictures, could not cover everything that we experienced. The trip to the boat launch was... More

If I were able to give more "green dots" for this vacation I would...first time ever!! Buck and Joni (along with Dax and their staff) run Mackay Bar Outfitters and Guest Ranch and you will NOT have a better vacation than this..don't even think twice.
