Enjoy Fishing in Idaho
To know if this is the best trip for you, let’s start by trying to talk you out of going. I know that sounds strange, but chasing Steelhead in the month of February in Idaho is a challenging pursuit. You need to be willing to be coached-up on new techniques, and be about the hunt not just the reward.
The joy you get from hooking into these fish is similar to what I experience chasing after Permit on the fly. The way we go after these fish gives us the best opportunity, while we also mix in swinging more productive stretches. You will be on waters that are home to the largest strain of steelhead in the world, and you have an opportunity here to play with a 20 lb. Steely. That is just silly! If you want to know what this trip means to people, just look at the smiles on our clients faces’ in the slide show at the bottom of the page.
January 22nd – March 5th, 2018
$250 a day per person
or $495 all inclusive
Fly Fishing the Clearwater River in Idaho is a trip you must take. It is simply the best for the adventure of catching steelhead.
Staying at the Clearwater 12 or Kamiah KOA puts us in the heart of steelhead country. Lodging has wifi, flat screen tv’s and great beds to rest up in after a full day of chasing steelhead. Each day will start with a hearty breakfast before heading out in drift boats. We will spend the day floating with opportunities to get out and swing the more productive stretches. We fish two anglers to the boat for various reasons, but this is not like chasing permit and you won’t get as many opportunities. This is a team effort and with more anglers, we are able to locate fish faster.
The all inclusive option at $495 a person provides lodging while in Kamiah Idaho, all fishing gear (except waders and boots), transportation once you are in Kamiah, all meals and guided fishing. For $250 a day per person you are covered for your float trip and the fishing gear but lodging and meals will be on you. Staying in Kamiah ID with access to restaurants and lodging is best.
What’s Not Included
Airfare to and from Nez Perce Municipal airport in Lewiston, Idaho, your shuttle to and from Kamiah, fishing license, liquor, gratuity for your guides and housekeeping staff. You will also need to bring warm layers and your waders and boots.
We recommend that you book at least three river days with us to aid in the learning process of this adventure, but if you only have one then lets get after it. We have clients catch fish on their first day as the Steelhead gods seem to have a sense of humor. However, to maximize your opportunities with these amazing fish, we need to put in the time. We fish two in a boat so grab a friend and share this memory together. When we hook into one of these beasts, it can turn into an all hands on deck situation, so the more hands the better.
All bookings for this trip go through Clearwater River Company. We are just guides for this outing and assist in the bookings. To ensure that we have your dates correct, you need to email Everset Outfitters at email@example.com so that we can put you into our calendar of availability.
