We are Idaho's Premier Fishing Outfitter

Jess Baugh Guide/Owner

I started guiding 22 years ago and still enjoy every day on the water. I have always loved sharing my passion for the river and fishing by helping others catch fish. I have lived, guided and fished in Idaho's backcountry my whole life, my wife Brenda and I have also raised 3 kids on the river. Working as a guide for 8 years for other outfitters helped me gain the knowledge and experience to bring the highest quality fishing trips to our clients. We pride ourselves on the quality of our equipment from our boats to our fishing rods and tackle, the lodges and our food, everything is top of the line. We understand that the little details are what make for great adventures and success. Located in Riggins, Idaho a small town centrally located between the Snake and Salmon Rivers surrounded by the Wilderness area's of North Central Idaho making it the perfect place for your next fishing adventure.
