Waters We Guide
Whether you are fishing in Silver Creek or our Private Waters, all of our fly-fishing destinations are scenic, calm, and guarantee an unforgettable experience.
Silver Creek is one of the most famous fly fishing streams in the world. Renown for perfectly timed hatches and world class dry fly fishing, anglers from around the globe come here to test their skill.
The Salmon River is one of our most unique destinations to fish. We fish upstream from Challis, about an hour and a half north of Sun Valley. In early spring, mid to late March, the river fills with steelhead as they complete their migration all the way from the Pacific Ocean to Idaho.
Upper Big Lost River
The high-country nature of the upper Lost River drainage makes it very user friendly for all skill levels of fly angler, it also makes it a great place to relax, breathe fresh air and listen to nothing but the sound of wind, water and maybe the occasional laughter of a happy fisherman.
Lower Big Lost River
The lower Big Lost River is a tailwater emitting from Mackay Reservoir. This fishery holds some great specimens of Rainbow trout. They grow large and fight hard due to the nutrient rich and very cold water coming from the bottom of the dam.
Big Wood River
The Big Wood River is born and tumbles south between the Boulder and Smoky Mountains, well north of the Sun Valley area as it heads for the fertile plains of the Snake River Basin.
Little Wood River
The Little Wood River offers two very distinct fisheries. The upper section of the Little Wood above the Little Wood Reservoir is a very small freestone stream running through cottonwood forests.
Picabo Angler offers more access to Silver Creek than any other Idaho Outfitter. We can fish with you over upstream hatches and spinner falls, or we can access quiet down river water where trophy Browns and Rainbows wait for the occasional Hopper or Mouse to present itself.
