We fish some of the most spectacular wilderness in the country. Mountain River Outfitters is permitted for more river miles in Idaho than any other fishing outfitter. If the conditions are not great on one section we can get you to the fish on another. We operate both jet boats, rafts and drift boats to make sure you get the best experience possible and to allow us to get places no one else goes.

Hells Canyon is awesome in every way, the best year around fishing in Idaho. The Snake River offers consistent water temperatures to give it the highesty fish per mile river section anywhere. Choose from warm water Bass, prehistoric Sturgeon or ocean run King Salmon. We use Rafts and Jet Boats to get you through the challenging whitewater on 1 to 6 day adventures.

The River of No Return is the largest un damed rivers in the lower 48 and has hundreds of miles of natural spawning of wild Steelhead. The Salmon River has breathtaking scenery and is teeming with wildlife as most of it flows through Idaho’s Wilderness. The Salmon River boasts some of the best wild and hatchery runs of Steelhead in the nation along with great Trout, Bass and Salmon.

The drift boats at MRO are clean, comfortable and are equiped with heaters for fall and winter fishing. Our jet boats are well maintained and are designed specifically for the Idaho rivers we run and the fish we catch. Our fly fishing rafts are perfect for those multi day summer fishing adventures.

You will not be disappointed with the rods and reels and all the terminal tackle we provide. We take clients with all experience levels although some equipment may fail if not used correctly. Our guides work tirelessly on keeping our quality fishing tackle in good working condition and replace it regularly.

No matter if your on a 1 day trip or a 3 day 2 night in Hells Canyon or enjoying the good life at one of the Lodges.  Our menu is a combination of the highest quality ingredients prepared as if at a high end restaurant.
