Join Wilderness Voyageurs on a trout safari to the legendary waters of Idaho with Echo River Trips.
Six days winding through the pristine wilderness of Idaho, on crystal rivers… Luxury, wilderness and phenomenal fishing is what you’ll enjoy when you spend a week floating the Middle Fork of the Salmon. We’ll travel 75 miles through the heart of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area.
Relax in riverside hot springs, encounter Bighorn Sheep, take in breathtaking scenery, witness rich Native American history and partake in some of world’s best trout fishing. The luxurious nature of this wilderness rafting trip makes it an ideal vacation for non-fishing partners.
The Middle Fork begins as a small, quick stream close to 6000 feet above sea level and increases more than five-fold in volume over its 100 mile course. The upper river flows through a tight canyon covered with Douglas fir and lodgepole pine. As your journey continues, the canyon opens and features ponderosa pine, sagebrush and mountain mahogany, which are more typical of the high desert.
The last two days, you’ll float on through the impressive Impassable Canyon, with almost vertical rock walls. As the trip nears an end, you enter the Main Salmon and encounter Cramer, which is a relatively new rapid caused by a landslide in 2003. It provides the perfect end to the trip just above take-out at Cache Bar.
For an unforgettable experience in the wild beauty of Idaho, we highly recommend this popular fly fishing trip.
