"This was quite a trip. It was a rugged and physically challenging experience, in country that was even more beautiful than normal as the leaves had begun to change. I've done a fair amount of hunting and, therefore, have a yardstick by which to measure the organization and professionalism associated with any particular hunt. You should know that the crew represents you incredibly well. They are organized and hardworking, yet retain a great sense of humor and are very enjoyable to be around. Their knowledge of the area and its wildlife is really impressive. More importantly, the ethical standards that they employ in their guiding and their sense of strong stewardship for the land on which we camped and hunted are first rate. Even if our results had not been so good (which they absolutely were!), I could not be more complimentary of their efforts and the credit that they bring to The Middle Fork Lodge."
The Resources at the Lodge
We invite you to enjoy the “non-consumptive” activities available at the Middle Fork Lodge and the super-natural country called the “Frank Church – River of No Return Wilderness” We can customize any trip you may have in mind that includes solitude, beautiful scenery, great fishing, camping, hearty western-style meals, gentle horses and old fashion fun. If you wish a leisurely vacation involving these activities from the comfort of the ranch, with it’s geothermal hot tubs and swimming pool, it’s a done deal. Maybe your desire is to “rough it” a little more and experience a progressive pack trip through the untrammeled wilderness, no problem. If you are a hardcore fly fisherman in search of solitude and trout that seldom if ever have experienced the disappointment of an artificial fly, search no further. The resources at our back door can provide all these things and more. Our streams and high mountain lakes can offer this scenario without so much as a ripple of concern. Our expertise and equipment will provide the means to access your dreams without undo impact on these pristine places. We are only accessible via raft trip, airplane or horseback. If you are in search of a beautiful remote hide-away, we won’t tell anyone you’re here.
