Experience Idaho’s fall fishing and hunting paradise when the Middle Fork becomes a deserted wilderness once the outfitters wind down their whitewater season. The crystal clear, spring-fed water gets lower and slower, which combined with an extraordinarily plentiful and aggressive population of native Cutthroat Trout, make it one of the most perfect dry fly fishing waters in the world. In addition to the many Cutthroat Trout, we also see some Rainbow Trout and an occasional Dolly Varden.

Our September Cast & Blast adventures are designed for real sports enthusiasts and are limited to 10 guests. Each trip is tailored to the group’s desires, whether it be fishing, hunting or both! Guests can choose to spend the day fishing from the moving rafts, drifting along, casting into deep pools, along eddies, or up against rock walls or in side tributaries when we are stopped. For hunters the Middle Fork’s natural abundance of Chukars is a dream. In the upper sections of the river, guests can be guided along plentiful benches, hiking and hunting for game birds or while in the lower canyons, where the walls narrow up, hunters can scout along the shoreline where the birds descend to the river. These trips offer the same gourmet touches and Pampered Camping™ as our peak season trips.

Whatever your desire, we can design the perfect trip for your group that offers ample opportunity for both fun and sport! Check out our launch dates and pricing.

Protecting the Wilderness Resource

In order to protect this priceless wilderness resource, the Idaho Fish & Game requires that all fishing on the Middle Fork be catch and release, using only single, barbless hooks and no live bait. Fishing and Chukar hunting licenses can be obtained online at Idaho Fish & Game, or at sporting goods outfitters or tackle shops in Idaho.

So for a serious sporting trip — whether it be fly fishing, spin fishing and/or Chukar hunting — join us in September!


Book Your Adventure


Our amazing trips feature gourmet food and a hot shower along with our “You Don’t Lift a Finger Service” ! At the end of each day, you’ll find a welcoming camp to greet you after a fun day on the river. The camp will be ready with tents, chairs, fire circle, toilet facility, hot shower and wash stations. Land on the beach, select your tent and a guide will deliver your bag so you can lay out your warm sleeping bag, change your clothing and settle in for the night. When you’re ready, join the group for appetizers, cold drinks and a warm fire … or if you prefer, relax in your tent, read a book or explore the area. After a delicious guide-prepared meal, most guests linger around the campfire sharing stories, stargazing, playing games and soaking up the magnificent scenery.

Guest Cancellation Policy: Because of the limited number of seats we are permitted to sell due to river management regulations, we cannot offer to take the financial loss associated with guest cancellations, even for emergencies. For this reason, in the case of a guest cancellation, deposits and payments are not refundable for any reason. We strongly suggest purchasing trip insurance. We are happy to transfer your seat to an alternate guest at no charge.


Cast & Blast Guaranteed Fishing Boat

Your boat is specifically designed for fishing, and a skilled guide provides you with a world-class fishing adventure. This allows maximum flexibility and enables you to leave camp early, arrive at camp late, and your guide is exclusively tasked with your fishing adventure.

Fishing Boat – This option allows maximum flexibility enabling you to leave camp early and arrive at camp late.

Advantages Of A Dedicated Fishing Boat:

  • Is a lighter 14’ AIRE maneuverable rubber boat, enabling you to go places you never considered, scraping over ledges and rocks
  • Rubber is extremely quiet, an advantage to fishermen and wilderness lovers
  • Is customized with two mounted seats and a hard floor
  • Has a clean frame, to help keep lines untangled
  • Is operated by a dedicated fishing guide
  • Carries no gear, so you can leave camp earlier, arrive later, and linger at good fishing holes

Unlike a drift boat, two fishermen can comfortably fish at the same time in our AIRE fishing boats. They are more comfortable than any other fishing boat on the river, seats have high back support, there is a hard surface suspended floor to stand on and leg rests to lean against while casting. While all our guides are excellent, only the very best operate our dedicated fishing boats. This boat MUST be booked in advance of your trip.
