September Salmon River Fly Fishing




Another September full of incredible Middle Fork Salmon River fly fishing has come and gone like a fleeting glimpse at an otter playing in the cold river current. Sandwiched between the hedonistic heat of August and the inclement deluge of October, September is the magnificent window of opportunity for any fly fisherman/woman seeking solitude, comfortable relaxation, and a really really fantastic Salmon River fall fly fishing trip. We hope you enjoy some of our photos from this wonderful season we had!

Cutthroat Coloration Change


The most spectacular change of colors in the Idaho wilderness is not the flaming yellow of the cottonwoods, nor the blazing red ninebark covering the rugged hillsides.  It happens in the river.  As the cutthroat trout embrace the relief of cold water with aggressive hysteria, their bodies respond with a display of jaw-dropping coloration.  Their whole being is engulfed in the seasonal gorging and migration.

Wilderness Camaraderie


A big part of our fall fly fishing trips is the sporting camaraderie only found in the wilderness!  Siblings, spouses, friends, guides, and our solitary selves re-identify in amazing ways on a 6 day fly fishing trip in the wilderness.
