Middle Fork River Tours

"Exceptional, heart-pounding whitewater"


crystal clear waters

As the premiere alpine river in the country, the Middle Fork of the Salmon drops 2700 ft in it’s 100 mile course providing heart pounding whitewater excitement with crystal clear waters. It is a wonderfully diverse river with whitewater ranging from long technical rapids that require precise maneuvering, to exhilarating drops at Velvet and Tappan Falls.The big waves of Impassable Canyon offer a fantastic finish to this exciting whitewater trip. There are over 80 rapids in all with the largest being class IV. Our guide staff are excellent high and low water boatmen and look forward to the challenges of the Middle Fork each summer.

Experience the middle fork

We offer state-of-the-art equipment to challenge the rapids of the Middle Fork. All of our rafts are self-bailing Maravia’s and are made specifically for the demands of whitewater. We want all of our guests to experience the Middle Fork of the Salmon River at their own comfort level so three types of rafts are provided for your enjoyment. On any one of our trips you can choose between an oar boat where you sit back and relax while the guide maneuvers the boat, grab a paddle and enjoy the teamwork of a paddle boat with crew and captain, or test your own skills in one of our inflatable kayaks. For fishing enthusiasts, we also provide drift boats and custom fishing rafts upon request.

Flying B Ranch Stays

The Flying B Ranch is located at mile 67 on the Middle Fork and has long been an ice cream and lunch stop for our guests. If your Chartered group would like to enjoy cabins, hot showers with full bathrooms, and home cooked meals we can certainly make these arrangements. The cost is $170 per person in July and $150 in August. The Flying B also offers horse back riding and skeet shooting for their overnight guests.

I’ve been wanting to do this trip for years. Finally booked the June 8th, high water trip. It was an action packed and exciting trip and I was glad to be with such knowledgable people. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Clint, Molly, and all the guides were on and off the river. They have thought of everything and were continuously thinking about how they could continue to improve guest’s experiences. I was so impressed with the dutch oven meals and the fact that we had fresh salads with every lunch. I hope I get a chance to do the Middle Fork again. If I do, i’ll definitely be going with Middle Fork River Tours.
