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.

Taking a 6 day trip into Idaho's Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness is a privileged experience in itself. Add the white water of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with a top notch outfitter, and it becomes a trip of a lifetime....More
