Fly Fishing Trips

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River, in Idaho's River of No Return - Frank Church Wilderness Area offers some of the most beautiful and pristine fishing in the country.  Located in the heart of the largest wilderness area in the Lower-48, the Middle Fork of the Salmon is the river for secluded and productive multi-day fishing expeditions. 

The Upper section of the Middle Fork, from Boundary Creek down, sees very little pressure from mid-July on each season, since the majority of trips launch lower on the river as water levels drop.  The lack of summer crowds makes for unparalleled trout fishing.

The Lower section of the river offers great fishing as temperatures cool.  Some of our favorite fishing on the Lower Middle Fork is on the rarely fished side creeks.  Loon Creek, Camas Creek and Big Creek all offer stellar opportunities to lose yourself to stalking the "big one" all afternoon!
We offer 4 or 5 day trips on the Upper Middle Fork, and 3 or 4 day trips on the Lower Middle Fork.  Combine Upper and Lower River for up to 8 days of non-stop fishing action.  Dates for the Lower river are flexible.  Call for details!

Perfect Timing 

  • Our Upper Middle Fork fishing trips take place at the end of the summer, after the fish have had a break from the pressure of the busy summer season.

  • Days are starting to get shorter, signaling the fish to feed and prepare for winter.  They won't be able to resist your fly!


Time to Fish

  • You get 3-8 days to dedicate to fishing one of the healthiest natural trout fishery in the country.​

  • On the water, each boat has two anglers and a dedicated guide. Fish at your own pace and soak up the fall colors!


  • More dates and trip lengths endow the trip with more options to fit your schedule.

  • Small trips inherently have more flexibility. With fewer guests, there is more time for adventure, exploration and obviously fishing!  We're really able to tailor the river trip to match the group.

  • Book the entire trip for maximum customization.  Call to chat about the possibilities.
