Fly fishing is a popular sport and Idaho has some of the best fly fishing available. Idaho offers a variety of fly fishing environments, from streams and rivers to lakes and reservoirs. This state is ideally suited to anyone with an interest in fly fishing, whether they are experts or just starting out.
Idaho is home to a number of fly fishing clubs and guides. If you want to find the best spots, or just learn the art you won’t have any trouble finding information or a guide. You can find anything from an easy day trip to a backpacking trip into the Idaho wilderness. Your options for fly fishing are almost boundless.
Idaho rivers are great for trout fishing. If you just want an easy trip, the Boise River is popular with locals. Fly fishing spots are located within an hour from Boise, so you can slip in some fishing while visiting the city. If you’re more adventurous you can try one of the many high mountain lakes in Idaho’s Sawtooth Wilderness. These require you to backpack in, but there is nothing that compares to the views, and the experience of fly fishing from these lakes. Because they are so remote you are likely to be the fisherman in the area, make for a peaceful and enjoyable trip.
