Family Fun on the Middle Fork

Kids Make a Whitewater Wilderness River Adventure Extra Special!

Mother DaughterLast spring before the season began, I was waiting for a flight to Denver in the crowded departure area of the Portland Airport.  I happened to be sitting next to a family – mom, dad and their three kids.  After a ten minute conversation where we each learned snippets about each other, they became fascinated with my ‘job’ – host, guide and outfitter on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River.

Customized Adrenaline

Do you have the need to ensure some of the members of your family or group get more action stimulation than others?  Not a problem!  With our “customized adrenaline” service, we’re able to work with each of our guests specifically to make sure they get exactly the kind of perfect balance of adrenaline rush compared to a little bit calmer experience.  For example a family might have a couple of teen boys who are high energy and want the adrenaline rush, but the mother might be a little less comfortable with the river and wants a less action packed experience.

Paddle Your Own Row Boat or Raft

Adventure Sun Valley offers paddle kayak support trips but we also offer a featured service called “Paddle Your Own” where you can bring your own raft and row your own boat on the river while having the support and amenities of food, camping, daily briefings and experience on the river plus as an option, camaraderie through meeting new people in camp.   We enjoy inviting river people who want to row their own boats on the Middle Fork Salmon River, and we have a tremendous amount of experience in that regards.   From the use of our permit,  to the support system available along the entire stretch of river, we are your companions to share adventure, without being overbearing.

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is one of the premier fishing rivers in the continental United States for native cutthroat and rainbow trout.

The water on the Middle Fork is crystal clear and the scenery is unmatched.  While the fish are not known for their excessive size, they are legendary for their willingness to aggressively attack your fly.
