The fly fishing was really fun for us as we are both 'beginners' ... the guides with Idaho River Journeys keep it simple and also provide historical ancedotal information along the way with... More

What an awesome experience. The Middle Fork is an unspoiled gem, and Northwest Rafting Company & ECHO River Trips know how to explore the beauty of the river while serving their clients' needs. Rafting with such a wonderful, funny, caring, and compassionate team made me wish the trip would never end. For me, this was the trip of a lifetime...rafting... More

A group of us decided to go on a 5 night 6 day rafting trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. The whole team at Echo was great and easy to work with! Everything was very organized from the flights in to the back country, to the bus ride out. Our guides; Jed, Audrey, Brodie, and Zach were... More

Our group of 3 mid sixty year old couples, "green horns" spent 6 days and 5 nights on the Middlefork of the Salmon River with MFRT. The river sets the stage for a wonderful experience. It's fast, clear and beautiful. The guide crew with over a 100 years combined experience on the Middle Fork was outstanding. Their knowledge and obvious... More

We spent 6 days and 5 nights with Clint and Molly Frank's crew on the Middle Fork. Awesome!! 2 young boys (son and nephew), my brother and my parents (72 and 74 years old) and it was a ton of fun. Food was fantastic, scenery breathtaking, guides could not have been more helpful and congenial. My mother had her 72nd... More

Third float down the Middle Fork with MFRE. All the guides are very experienced with impressive knowledge of the Middle Fork as well as fishing, the nature along the journey and great in the kitchen. Two new guides (to me) on this trip: Bev and Blake; both fit in the team very nicely. The best reference I can give is... More

The crew we had -- Jonah, Sea Marie, Landon, Max, John, Kirk, and Julia -- were beyond phenomenal. They were amazing tour guides during the day and the coolest people to hang out with at night. The Salmon River sells itself -- what separates ROW is the group of guides we had. We brought our 3 kids (ages 11 thru... More

This was a reunion trip for several of my high school classmates. We all turned 60 this year. It was fabulous. Food was tailored to needs (i.e. gluten-free etc). Guides were outstanding. Scenery and activities cannot be described in words alone. Personally, I'm less than fit and haven't camped in awhile, but MFRE was very doable. I almost didn't get... More

We rafted the Middle Fork of the Salmon with Far and Away Adventures July 18-24, 2016. We had 11 in our group of friends, and there were 11 others from Seattle who turned out to have friends in common with us. The age range was from 14 to 63. The trip was a blast from start to finish.
