Fly-Fishing on the Middle Fork of the Salmon
The Middle Fork of the Salmon is a celebrated “blue ribbon” trout stream that is home to a hearty population of Westslope Cutthroat Trout. Although fly-fishing is excellent throughout the season, conditions are best once high water has subsided.
The boats we use on all our trips provide opportunities to fish. Typically on a full trip our fleet we will include 3 or 4 oar-rigs that work well for angling. Guests can fish from our oar-boats, near camp or at lunch stops. If you don’t have your own gear and want to try your hand at fly-fishing, let us know and we will outfit you with everything you need except an Idaho fishing license. Our guides will teach you the basics and have you catching (and releasing) trout after a few practice sessions. If you are bringing your own gear, our Middle Fork Fly-Fishing Suggestions PDF will be helpful.
Late Season, Small Party Fly-Fishing Trips
Towards the latter part of the summer rafting season, temperatures typically cool and fishing gets even better than it had been. Our September 2, 12 and 21 trip dates are exclusively for fly-fishing. Trip size is limited to 12 participants. Parties of 8 – 12 may charter a fishing date. These small party fishing trips book well in advance so early reservations are essential. Our Late Season Fly-Fishing page has more information.
