If you haven’t visited the beautiful Clearwater River Valley you’re in for a rare fishing experience. Some of the largest steelhead and salmon in the lower 48 are found right here in the beautifully scenic Clearwater River.

We invite you to come and enjoy some of the best fishing in the western United States! The Clearwater hosts some of the largest B-Run Steelhead in the world, and also offers one of the area’s little-known secret pleasures – a float trip angling for small-mouth bass!

With an average Clearwater River Steelhead weighing in at 12-15 pounds – and plenty of fish over 20 pounds landed each season – the long season and relatively low fishing pressure makes the area a great opportunity for our customers to tag one of these Northwest Giants.

The fun begins with the summer catch and release season when you can have a great time low water fishing in a guided drift boat. If filling the freezer or smoker is more your style you can join us for Catch and Keep season which runs from approximately October through April.

Some of the best Spring Chinook Salmon fishing in the United States happens here beginning in April and running clear through to July depending on the fish runs. Spring Chinook Salmon from the Clearwater River provide excellent table fare. These “springers” can top the scale at 20 plus pounds!

We would love to have you as our guest. Our guided trips are always popular so you’ll want to book your trip early and prepare yourself for a great fishing experience. Call us today for details!

River Conditions

Have you noticed nobody is talking about the fishing?

Every December things slow down just a little, fish become lethargic. They are still out there and plenty of them, however, they are not jumping on the hook. This is the time of year where casts have to be precise and fishermen work the deeper holes a little longer with plenty of patience to produce a limit.

Lately, jig fishermen have been catching steelhead on the nightmare jig; white, red, black. Also, the victoria secret; pink, pink and purple. Bank fishermen are catching steelhead in the poleyard hole and on the North Fork.

Plug fishermen have been using black with silver flakes and orange and green with success. Boat fishing in the slaughterhouse and McGill holes has produced fish this week.

Stop by and see us. We have a fully stocked tackle shop. We are located at 11360 Highway 12, Orofino, ID. (Next to the Subway shop)
