Looking for Main n Middle Salmon Trip Cost Average

Just curious what everyone else is paying for a private Main or Middle Salmon trip? I would like know an average price people are getting the trips done for. Not including Gas and Shuttle.

Not including gas and shuttle. $35-40/day/person on the river, plus one night of camping at put-in. Covers forest service fees, boat sticker, camp fuel, food, beer, fishing tackle & license, new camping gear and gadgets, and helps cover wear and tear on gear. Usually after a week long trip it is nice to stay in a hotel with a hot shower, so that is some extra money.

No rental items in my cost. And a small group size 8 or less. Lost or significantly damaged equipment also would bump up the cost at the end.

We generally have a group of 8-10 people. All in cost of the trip per person runs about $300-400 for an 8 day trip. That includes gas, shuttle, food, propane, kitchen supplies, ice, camping at the put-in, etc. We always stay the night in Boise after the trip....shower, dinner, movie, bed, air conditioning.

In our usual group each person/couple provides x meals for the group depending on group size and number of days. If we don't include gas or shuttles that is the cost plus the river fees which run about $4/6 per day per person. We have all our gear so obviously more if you have to rent.

Like a guided trip? Looking online, seems to cost about 2800 a person for a 6 day trip.
