Rawhide Outfitters Fishing Testimonials

Ron Cunningham – Idaho Falls, Idaho
Leslie and I cannot say enough about the wonderful time we had with Luke. The day was much more than we expected and Luke went above and beyond to make it special. Thanks to his mom for a wonderful lunch. And thanks again to Luke for filleting Leslie’s Salmon at the end of the day. We would do this trip again in a heart beat.

Cathy & Crew WOW! WOW!Our family couldn’t stop talking about our rafting trip. You have given us an experience with many memorable memories we will treasure as a family for years to come. Your crew gave us a feeling of being safe, relaxation, great food, and was willing to get to know us as well as tell us some great stories. For those of us who enjoy fishing thank you for giving us a chance to fly fish for it was a bonus for us to catch some great rainbow, cutthroats and even a bull trout. Unfortunately, we did get the chance to challenge Luke and Steve to horseshoes, but we couldn’t have asked for a better trip or a great crew. You have a wonderful family.

Hi Cathy, Luke and Steve…Wanted to thank all of you for a very memorable 3 day float last week on the main Salmon River. The entire family (all 9 of us) just had a great time together. We will have numerous stories to share for many years to come. The entire staff at Rawhide is very dedicated to showing all guests what the great ol’ outdoors has to offer. Good conversation, great food, the list goes on and on… And by the way, Luke and Steve’s blueberry cobbler was excellent! Again, all of us on the Cochran/Meucci trip had the best time. We will highly recommend you and hope we can come back soon.

We had a great day on the Salmon River with Justin yesterday. Justin was so energetic, informative and helpful. We learned so much, had fun and even caught steelies!

Donald Collar – Post Falls, Idaho
“I have fished in a lot of places with a lot of guides and have never been with a more knowledgeable and professional group. The fishing trips were really a treat especially with friends rowing the boat! I consider it a privilege to have been part of your family for a brief moment in time and finished with the best there is! Thank you for your warmth and hospitality.”

“We just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful day we had fly fishing with Steve in July! Steve was the perfect guide and made it a very special day! We are back home in the UK now looking at our photos which have brought back memories of an unforgettable day. We will recommend you to any of our friends who may venture to your part of the world!”

Jim Malouf – Logan Utah
“Yesterday we had the most enjoyable float on the section about seven miles below the town of Salmon. I hope it was the first of many fishings trips to come! Our guide was Steve, who did a fine job of putting us on fish, providing good company, expert oarsmanship, and keeping us fed…which brings me to request for your tomato soup secrets..it was the best!”

“Johnny, Cathy, Luke & Justin, I had the best time fishing with Johnny and Luke last week. I have seldom fished anywhere and limited out EVERY day! Thanks so much for a world class week on the river. Hopefully, if I am not in Afghanistan my family and I will see you next July for a full week of fishing, rafting and horseback riding. If I do deploy my boy and I will see you next steelhead season. All the best to you and your family (and Jack too!). God Bless, Lt Col Chris Stratton”

Steve Kettel – Spokane Washington
“My son and I had a great day salmon fishing on the Salmon River. Luke was our guide and there is no harder working, knowledgeable gentleman on the river. We both caught exceptional fish which were well taken care of, fileted out and frozen for us for our return trip home. The lunch, especially the cookies were outstanding. We are looking forward to returning for the steelhead season this fall.”

Rich and Xiaoyan Koepplin – Boise Idaho
“Two wonderful steelhead trips with Rawhide and no regrets. We even made a run with our two year old daughter. Everyone catches fish on these trips, and the attention to detail is second to none. This is one of the most thoughtful and gracious outfitters you could fish with.”

Jay Matthews – Montana
“Where to begin, we had a great time fishing steelhead with Rawhide Outfitters, the guides truly are the best on the river and the food is made to order. We never have trouble catching fish with Rawhide, and are planning our next trip to Salmon, Idaho for steelhead of course. Thanks, Cathy and Crew”
