Middle Fork of the Salmon River, Idaho

The most prolific and unspoiled westslope cutthroat trout fishery in the world, the Middle Fork of Idaho’s Salmon River offers what many consider the finest multi-day wilderness float trip in America.

While the fly fishing is excellent throughout the season, the early season favors big white water, and the late season favors fly fishing. From July through September, low flows offer non-stop dry fly action for anglers of all skill levels. Late season fly fishing-only trips are limited to eight anglers and begin with a fly-in to the middle river allowing ample time to thoroughly fly fish this remarkable wilderness river.

Out preferred outfitter, Solitude River Trips, is owner-operated and boasts a superb staff, incredible Dutch oven cuisine, comfortable camps that are fully set up upon arrival, and a safety and service record that is unequaled in the field. For group members interested in more than fishing, hiking and paddling inflatable kayaks are daily options. Add to that the natural hot springs, native pictographs, and abundant wildlife of the area, and you will quickly see why we consider this trip through the lower 48’s largest contiguous wilderness area a never to be forgotten experience for family groups and nature-loving anglers alike.
