Most folks fly into Boise for a Stanley launch and then either rent a car or take an air taxi flight to Stanley. If your launching from Salmon (August) the closest airport is Missoula, MT. Missoula has many car rental options. We have a secure, locked storage room at the Mountain Village Lodge for luggage and other items that you do not want to take on the river. For August trips, the Stagecoach can hold any extra luggage for the week.
