Middle Fork of the Salmon Flyfishing

Fishing the Middle Fork of the Salmon through the heart of Idaho’s River of No Return Wilderness is truly a world-class experience.

Expert fly fishers consider the Middle Fork of the Salmon to be one of the best Wild Westslope Cutthroat Trout fisheries in the world. Designated a “catch and release” river more than 40 years ago has protected this clear stream and its wild cutthroat population. There has never been a hatchery or nonnative fish introduced into this “Blue Ribbon” fishery. The wild nature of the cutthroat in this river is rare and found in only a few places in the world. The abundant cutthroat population insures success for even novice fishermen. On all sportsman adventures we have a two to one guest to guide ratio, with separate gear and kitchen boat. Start fishing early and go as late as you want each day. When you get to camp, your tent will be waiting along with all other camping amenities, insuring a comfortable rest before the next days sporting adventure!
