Idaho Fly Fishing Trip


Idaho Maps

Idaho is a great state for the flyfisher who doesn't mind spending a little time behind the wheel. In fact, it seems the highway system in Idaho is laid out for easy migration from one hotspot to the next. Highway 84 will get you from one end of the state to the other, with plenty of time to hit some of the world-class fly fishing destinations in between.
After a morning of casting to hungry freestone rainbows on the Big Wood River, take lunch near Hemmingway's final resting place in Ketchum, and then head down to the legendary Silver Creek to test your skills against the tight lipped denizens of this marshy treasure. Throw your waders in the trunk and make a 2 hour trip to Idaho Falls. Get your rest; you'll need it on the Henry's Fork of the Snake River in the morning!


Salmon season closes in early August.

The speed limit in Idaho is 75 MPH in most areas. This will get you to the rivers a little faster.
