Hi skubutz;


I agree with everything that mcnerney wrote, but with the caveat that Idaho is a B-I-G state, over 700 miles from my house (near Twin Falls) to the Canadian border and over 400 miles across. You won't go wrong, or be disappointed, if you concentrate over in the southeastern portion...Henry's Fork and South Fork areas. You can then fish the Park too. Of course, if it's steelhead on the fly you want, you'll have to come over to the Salmon River (biggest steelhead run in recent memory) or head up to the Clearwater drainage.

And a welcome to you, too, Neil. There are quite a few accommodations in and around Idaho Falls and in the Island Park area. You can even rent equipment if you don't want to bring it along on your trip. There are a couple of lodges that offer guide services as well. It sort of depends on what you're looking for. Perhaps you can PM me with details...same for skubutz, too, if you want.'

DISCLAIMER: I have no affiliation with guides, lodges, restaurants, clothing companies, tackle companies, or any such. Just an ol' flyfisher that hasn't cast his last line yet.

You might notice my dearth of posts. It's not because I don't like this forum, I do, it's just that I spend most of my time fly-fishing, wing-shooting, tying flies, loading shells, and keeping my wife happy.
