We have taken 2 trips on the middle fork and 1 on the lower salmon all with Hughes River Expeditions. Each one has been the most amazing experience. My favorite is the middle fork-almost the entire trip is through wilderness area and the fly fishing for cut-throat trout is world class. The lower salmon is a great trip too, the water is warmer thus we enjoyed kayaking on this trip as well, although the fishing isn't as good. On both trips the landscape, wildlife and camping spots are incredible. What really makes the trips special are the guides from Hughes--they are friendly, experienced and wonderful cooks. The food on these trips is amazing. After four trips (the fourth was on the snake river through Hells Canyon-covered on another review) we consider many of them friends and will certainly be going on additional trips with Hughes in the future.
