Wilderness Steelhead Fishing

Wilderness Steelhead Fishing on Idaho’s Salmon River

Salmon River multi-day wilderness steelhead fishing trips include ground charters and explosive sport fishing. We raft a remote 60-mile section of the River of No Return, probing deep riffles for fish migrating upstream to spawn. The wildlife and scenery during this time of year can be as exciting as the fishing. The entire river can be fished with spinning gear. There are also frequent fly-fishing runs in the canyon.

Minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 fishermen per trip. 2 fishermen per boat.
