Where is the Best Fly Fishing in Idaho? 

When visitors ask us where the best fly fishing in Idaho is, we always send them to the Middle Fork and Upper Main Salmon Rivers. Here, you’ll find a variety of fish that will grab at your line like rainbow, cutthroat, brook, and bull trout, Chinook salmon, steelhead, and more.

Where Can I Get Fishing Gear?

The fishing gear you will need will depend on if you decide to go fly fishing in Idaho by yourself or with a guide. There are tons of fishing excursions offered in this area; we recommend going with one of them because they usually provide everything you need. Otherwise, you can bring your own supplies or pick up what you need at Stanley Fly Shop. Keep in mind those over the age of 14 will need a fishing license from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game as well.
