Clothing

Weather conditions in the Middle Fork canyon can change rapidly. Being prepared will ensure your comfort no matter what the weather conditions (it has snowed on us in August!). We provide rain gear if you don't have your own and splash tops, but the proper layering of clothing under the rain gear is essential. Although cotton is great on a hot day, it is nonfunctional on a cold, wet day. When cotton clothing gets wet, it stays wet and will pull the warmth right out of you. Synthetic thermal long underwear and pile fleece garments are wonderful for the river - they wick moisture away from your skin, helping to keep you warm, even when wet, and the material dries very fast. We strongly recommend that you have at least one pair of mid-weight, synthetic, thermal underwear, top & bottoms, and either a wool sweater or pile fleece jacket for your trip. If you live in a warm climate and cannot find these items locally, you can go on-line to www.cascadeoutfitters.com and find clothing made for river adventures. For last minute items the Riverwear or River 1 stores located in Stanley have great selections and are well stocked for summer floaters. Visit them at www.riverwear.com or www.River1.com.  All are local Idaho shops, let's help support them.

Riverwear and River 1 in Stanley, Idaho can accommodate you with any necessary outdoor apparel the night before your river trip.

Thanks for the Memories

It was a blast ! Middle Fork River Tours was outstanding! The river sets the stage for a wonderful experience. It's fast, clear and beautiful. The guide crew with over a 100 years combined experience on the Middle Fork was outstanding. Their knowledge and obvious love of the river allowed us to enjoy the river in a safe yet exciting way. Our in camp experience was just as fun. The food was great !
