Idaho's Premier Fly Fishing Lodge

This trip features great Cutthroat fly fishing from our lodge on the South Fork of the Salmon River at Mackay Bar in the River of No Return Wilderness. We also have our experienced guides take you by jet boat for more great small stream fly-fishing on several tributaries of the Main Salmon River, offering miles of water to explore right from the lodge. Most fish caught are Rainbows, Bull Trout and Cutthroat trout. Most of the streams are within a short jetboat ride from the lodge. These streams are very productive for those willing to walk and wade, and while the fish are not huge the fish are plentiful.

3 Day 2 Night Fly Fishing Lodge Trip
You will be picked up at 2:00pm and transported to the lodge the 1st day this will give you a chance to relax and get ready for the full day of fishing the next day or take a few hours and fish around the lodge. After a hearty breakfast at the lodge you will be transported by jet boat to one of the tributaries of the Main Salmon River. These small streams are full of trout just waiting for your fly to hit the surface. After a full day of Walk and Wade Fly Fishing we will bring you back to drinks on the deck a hot shower and great food at the lodge. Those still wanting more can take a hike from the lodge and catch a few more as the sun sets in the canyon. The last day you can choose to see some historical sites on the way out or spend a few more hours chasing that big rainbow or bull trout. You are back to the end of the road at 1:00pm.
