alpine trout fishing

There is nothing like the peace and solitude of a fly fishing trip into a high mountain lake. Truly a fisherman's paradise, the Sawtooth Wilderness supports a large number of crystal clear lakes with Cutthroat, Rainbow, and Brook Trout, along with Arctic Greyling. Best of all, due to the remoteness and limited access to these wilderness alpine lakes, angling pressure is light.

Whether you are a novice spin caster or a seasoned fly fisherman, come join us for some of the finest backcountry trout fishing in the West. Exploring our high mountain lakes is a great way to combine hiking, horseback riding, and camping with Idaho fishing.

Sawtooth Wilderness Outfitters provides quality horse pack trips and hiking options to accommodate your preferences. You can enjoy a fully furnished package where we provide the camp gear, food, and do the cooking and camp chores. Or you can use our drop service where we transport you and your equipment to a high mountain lake so you can fish and explore on your own.
