Towards the latter part of the summer rafting season, temperatures typically cool and fishing gets even better than earlier in the season. Our September dates are exclusively for fly fishing the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho. The trip size is limited to 12 participants. Parties of 10 – 12 may charter a fishing date. These small party fishing trips book well in advance so early reservations are essential.
Guests joining us for fishing trips will meet us in Salmon. We meet the night before departure and use an air charter service to get to the river the next morning. That flight is included in your trip fare. Charter groups can arrange for their entire group to meet us in Boise, Ketchum, Salmon or Stanley. Charter groups flying to the river from a location other than Salmon are subject to a supplemental air-charter fee.
We arrive at a landing strip adjacent to the river around 9:30 am. After a brief orientation, we set off downstream. Our fly fishing boats are comfortable, spacious, and light. They’re 14ft in length and can accommodate two fishermen and a guide per boat. The fishing frame has a comfortable seat in front and a swivel seat in the back, and each fisherman has plenty of storage space in their compartment to store gear. On the last day of the trip, we arrive at take-out around noon and then return to Salmon by bus or van. Guests are responsible for post-trip arrangements from Salmon.
