About Idaho River Adventures
A trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon is like no other. Situated in the largest Wilderness Area in the lower 48, the 105 mile long Middle Fork of the Salmon cuts the Frank Church-River of no Return Wilderness Area directly in half. You will see Native American cultural sites, remnants of early Euro-American homesteaders, and wildlife including bald eagles and osprey, mule deer, Rock Mountain bighorn sheep, river otter, and many others. The Middle Fork of the Salmon was one of the eight original river sections designated in 1968 under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act and has been managed as a catch-and-release, blue Ribbon Trout fishery since 1973 making it the best dry-fly fishing Wilderness experiences in the World. You will not be disappointed with a trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon.

Great Middle Fork River Trip with IRA!! I was a single female traveling solo and I had a blast. Dustin and the guides were excellent, the food was delicious. There is nothing like sleeping under the stars by the river. I packed exactly what was on the packing list and this Texas girl does not understand fleece. Texas fleece and Idaho fleece are two different things. Pack something warm for the first two days of an August trip and maybe a warm hat for mornings. Also a portable phone charger is a must!! Loved, loved, loved this adventure!!

Our trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon river with Idaho River Adventures was truly one of the best vacation of our lives (ages 61 and 64). The river and scenery were fantastic. The guides were warm and engaging, 100% on top of everything we encountered, and worked their asses off to set up our camps and cook excellent meals. We had the rare experience in the modern world of being totally unplugged and were able to appreciate every minute of it thanks to the attention to detail, caring, and skill of Dustin and team.

I have rafted a number of Idaho rivers and all are unique and exceptional. My most recent trip on the Main-Middle Salmon is no exception! Options included: stand-up paddle boarding, ducky/kayaking, 4-6 person rowing or joining a guide on an oar boat. Group was about 24 including guides and we felt like a large extended family by the end of the trip. The guides were amazing and worked together as a seamless unit. The group was congenial, and everyone pitched in to help as needed (although there was no expectation that we do so). The food was excellent, and the crew were very sensitive to any dietary needs. The scenery was breath-taking. Lots of wildlife including big-horn sheep, black bears, deer, bald eagles, heron, otters, mink, etc. Even star-gazing at night in a dark-sky wilderness is so different from the city! 6 days without electronics and an opportunity to be one with nature and get away from it all.
