16th Wilderness Leadership Adventure on Idaho's Middle Fork of the Salmon River

Join Bob on Idaho’s Middle Fork of The Salmon River,  August 10-15, 2020. The Frank Church Wilderness is spectacular beyond belief, nestled in The Sawtooth Mountains of central Idaho with 78 peaks over 10,000 feet, offers exciting, yet safe white water, some of the best trout fishing anywhere in the world, awesome beauty, and white sandy beach campsites surrounded by towering Ponderosa Pines. During this best week of summer - you’ll see much wildlife from big horn sheep to river otters to moose and eagles.  Each afternoon there’ll be time for seminar, sharing and the special personal insights for which these trips are known.   

CE CREDITS:  This year’s breathtaking leadership/Adventure Seminar will explore “Mastering the Rivers of Your Life” Two hours each day we’ll focus on leadership mastery in the context of a life well lived. We’ll do important reflection and life planning, utilizing the wilderness for experiential learning and metaphor along with light readings and discussions.  Earn up to two CE credits per day!

 The Adventure ~ during this six-day & five night river trip we will float 100 miles of pristine river.   This will be my ninth trip down the crown jewel of wild and scenic rivers through the 2.4 million-acre Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

Janet, Laura and I had a ball!  That will be a family vacation we will remember fondly.  What great beauty and adventure. We look forward to joining you again!”~ Dr. Tom McDougal and Family   Dallas, Texas, - 972-231-5376.

There will be plenty of time for seminar and for indulging in some of the best fishing in the West (Cutthroat, Dolly Varden and bull trout), take a wild flower hike, soak in a hot spring or  admiring the fine scenery including homesteads,  remnants of the early prospectors, trails and pictographs painted by the river’s earliest inhabitants, the Tukudeka or Sheepeater Indians, a horseless tribe that once roamed & hunted the canyon. Our guide, Idaho Wilderness Company, provides a stress-free, relaxing vacation that includes delicious hearty meals, clean-up, as well as setting up & breaking down camp.


Each day after breakfast and lunch you’ll have your choice of river craft…the massive Sweep boat for great fishing, the Oar boats for fishing or sightseeing, the Paddle boat or the Inflatable Kayaks for the more adventuresome. And yes, you can change crafts! The rapids range from gentle class I riffles to heart pounding class III & IV”s on a scale of I to VI.  With names that are legendary, like Velvet, Hells Half Mile, Tappen Falls, Devil’s Tooth, Pistol Creek, Powerhouse and Rubber. Not all is whitewater, calm stretches interspersed with small rapids for the more cautious to try their hand at paddling or even swimming. 


In true wilderness only 30 heartbeats are allowed in any party. With six guides that leaves 24 of us. There are only a few places still open. If you’d like to learn more about this once in a lifetime adventure please go to our calendar on this website or call 512-346-0455.
