Salmon River Float Fishing Trips near Sun Valley in Stanley Idaho

How does it work?
Each fishing raft normally holds two fishing guests. A specially designed fishing frame allows guests to fish either standing or sitting. A licensed professional guide maneuvers the raft and shares fishing expertise.
We fish on the headwaters of the Salmon River north of Stanley, Idaho where fresh snowmelt from the Sawtooth Mountain Range funnels down into the Salmon River. On the Salmon River we predominatley fish for Cutthroat trout. These trout were once the dominant trout species of the western United States and are the most willing to take to a dry fly. Also plentiful on the Salmon are Rainbow and Cuttbow Trout. Typical fish are in the 12 to 15 inch range with savy anglers landing fish in the 20 inch range.
Trips typically are scheduled early and late in the day -- the best times for fishing, however our guests specify times and duration. These trips include several hours of prime-time fishing, an experienced guide, whitewater, and you choose how long you would like to be on the water. A Idaho fishing license is required and can be purchased beforehand. The River Company makes available rods and reels for your use. Guests are only charged for the flies they use. An optional picnic lunch prepared by our company chef can be included for $10 per person.
