If you're a hardshell or inflatable kayaker we'd love to have you join us. We have a fleet of modern creekboats and playboats to choose from. Just bring your paddle, skirt, PFD, and helmet. Learn more about kayaking on the river.

You can also join our friends Phil and Mary DeRiemer who offer kayak guiding and instruction on two special trips every summer. Learn more about DeRiemer Kayak Trips.

Trips on the Middle Fork vary greatly throughout the season as no dams regulate the flow. Early June is when the river is at peak flow, so you can run the full 100 miles in a quicker trip. Kayakers enjoy the river from June through early July. Families prefer July and August trips, when the weather is warmer and the flow is suitable for children. In late July or early August, the first 25 miles of the Middle Fork get too low to raft. At this point, which varies year to year, you will fly into an airstrip along the river and enjoy the last 75 miles of the river at a leisurely pace. Our office staff is happy to help you choose the best time to experience this incredible river.

Pre-Trip

You'll want to arrive in scenic Stanley, Idaho the day before your trip. It is a beautiful small town nestled at the foot of the Sawtooth Mountains. At 8 PM, there will be an orientation meeting at the Mountain Village Lodge. Here you will meet your head guide and the other guests on your trip.

The head guide will distribute dry bags, sleeping bags, and pads so you can get packed up and be ready to head out in the morning. You'll also find out if you'll be flying or driving into the river and what time to be ready (usually 8 AM). You can ask last minute questions and fill out a quick form if you're having your car shuttled to Salmon. There's a store right next to the Mountain Village lodge where you can pick up any last minute things for the trip.
