Just like early July is known as the best time to fish the Middle Fork, September is very comparable and even preferred my many.  The water is beginning to cool down and the fish get more active. Come enjoy the world class dry fly fishing of the Middle Fork while surrounded by beautiful fall colors.  September is also loved my many as the best time of year on the river because of the lack of visitors to the river and the smaller group sizes.  These trips are run in customize fishing rafts.  These fishing rafts provide the perfect set up for accessing prime fishing spots during lower water conditions.
