Reviews About Salmon River Whitewater Rafting & Fishing with Aggipah River Trips:

I have tried to decide what made the trip so special, other than the wonderful trip itself. I finally decided that rather than feeling like someone who had hired someone else to take them on a trip, it felt like going with friends. There was none of this “you are the client” type of thing.

We cannot thank you and all your crew enough for an incredible week on the Salmon river. It was the Best!!! We just got home from our time in Sun Valley and I cannot tell you how many times we thought of you all having your son home and being on the river!! Again, many many thinks for everything!! Could you please send me 10 brochures?? All the best to you, Steph, Jamie, Tony etc.

Thanks for one of the most memorable vacations ever. We’re hoping to bring the whole family for a trip some day…as soon as our grandson is old enough. Everything was top-notch and we especially enjoyed your company.

I want to thank you for a fantastic trip on the Lower Salmon River. I still think about it daily. It was a trip and experience that I will never forget. Your organization, equipment and culinary skills are second to none.

B. Dougherty

I can’t believe it has been a whole year since we gathered for our wonderful never-to-be forgotten trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with you. Everyone is still talking about it with joy and delight. Our family will hold the experience in our hearts and mind’s eye forever. There was a spiritual quality to the adventure as well as all the fun, which reinforced the affection between family members.

My friends and I recently returned from rafting the Main Salmon with Aggipah River Trips. I have extensive previous rafting experience, including the Colorado through the Grand Canyon and Cataract Canyons, the Grreen, the Yampa, and the Rogue. I have to say that the Main Salmon with Aggipah was by far my best rafting experience. Bill and Stephanie Bernt have a reverence for the river and the wilderness that is contagious. The history and knowledge that they shared made me feel like I was an integral part of the experience. The Bernts run a first class operation. Even the equipment and food was a cut above what I had experienced with other outfitters… My friends and I are already planning our Middle Fork trip for next summer!

I just do want to tell you that I enjoyed the trip immensely. The country and the river were all you said they would be, and your hospitality and such were, of course, simply excellent… Not the least of the attractions of the trip was the people I met… I won’t carry on, but I did want you to know how pleased I was (and am) with the trip.


We have been home for a week or so and are catching up with everything but the wonderful trip on the Middle Fork keeps us going!! Just thinking of the fun trip we had with all of you is enough to put a smile on our faces. Thank you all so much for such a great time! You were so organized and we appreciate what you do, Peggy, to get things done at home so that the trips go so well.

Tom & Roz

Thank you all for a marvelous adventure. I enjoyed the Middle Fork even more than the Main. Your expertise is only exceeded by your hospitality.

Jerry & Ann

I wanted to tell you what a great time Perry and I had on our recent river trip! You and your staff did a fantastic job getting us down the river safely, even through Cramer (rapid)…The food was delicious (thanks for accommodating my lettuce allergy), the tents easy and the pads comfortable.


Just a thank you note for making our vacation down the Main Salmon last week so wonderful. The six of us had a terrific time, due in large part to your wonderful daughter, Stephanie. She has a truly good soul, is a highly skilled boatman….I already have a number of folks here in Minnesota who would like to consider a trip with Aggipah, so if you could send me a few more of your flyers, I’ll distribute them.

A short note to express our thanks to you for a wonderful holiday with Aggipah. Dena, Rebecca, and I all had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the time away to replenish our souls and make new friends. It was a wonderful treat to share the trip with your friends and get to know people and their stories from a part of the country we have not had the opportunity to visit before.


Thank you so much for making the float trip on the Lower Salmon River last week a great time. I really enjoyed everything about it, and am looking forward to the day when I can enjoy another similar experience. Your stories, hospitality, and knowledge of the land and river as something special to the experience. Thanks again!

My brother-in-law is wheelchair bound. Bill, his daughter Stephanie and the crew brought a special boat and did things out of the ordinary to make the trip special for him. I do not think I have ever met a group of people with more honest compassion and understanding in my life.

Just wanted to follow up with a word of appreciation for the great time you showed my son and me.  Not only did we have a great time fishing, but also really enjoyed getting to know you–and learning from your years of wisdom!  You are a class operator and I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again or recommend you to others.


Yesterday we hiked up Warren Creek a couple miles to the Romine Ranch. The weather was partly cloudy, but not rainy. We saw a small wolf track that was about a day old. We witnessed elk grazing across the creek. The old ranch was really cool- like stepping back in time.


For the “Maxcrew” the biggest highlight this year was rafting, fishing, swimming, kayaking, rock jumping and eating our way down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with the “East Coast Thompsons”.  There’s nothing like 6 days of wilderness.. no phones, no lights, no motorcars,…”
