We look forward to having you join us on the Middle Fork of the Salmon. Our trips fill quickly, so if space is available, you can reserve seats on a 2018 or 2019 Middle Fork trip with Idaho River Journeys by calling us at 1-208-756-8116 or by booking online.

Middle Fork Reservation Info

Early reservations are essential since space is limited and most of our trip dates book well in advance. Call us for current availability. If the date you want is not available, give us a call anyway. Sometimes a guest or party has a change of plans. 

A non-refundable deposit of $500 per person is required to reserve a space on the Middle Fork. The balance is due 60 days (90 days for charters) before departure. If you have a group of 10 or more people you may qualify for a group or charter discount.

Most of our Middle Fork trips meet in Stanley, Idaho. By arrangement, groups chartering a trip may opt to meet in Stanley, Ketchum, Boise or Salmon. Three-day trips that join a longer Middle Fork trip in progress are $1,795 per person, including a flight to or from the river from Stanley or Salmon.

Water, weather or other conditions dictate where we launch our Middle Fork trips. For trips that meet in Stanley, we launch from Boundary Creek, which is accessible by bus, or from Indian Creek, which is accessible by air. If we launch from Indian Creek, the cost of the flight is not included in our trip fare. For our August 17 and 25 trips, the cost of the flight from Stanley is included in our trip fare. 

All reservations are subject to a $4/day Recreation Enhancement Act Fee.
