Idaho Fishing Guides and Charters

When you mention that Idaho fishing guides and local anglers in Idaho have some best freshwater fishing in the USA many folks just look at you and really don’t know what to say. Most out of town anglers don’t think of Idaho as a top fishing state or that there might even be some decent charter boat fishing in Idaho. Let’s face it, most of us not from Idaho were taught that Idaho was famous for potatos not Idaho fishing guides. But this couldn’t be more wrong. Yes Idaho is known for potatos but pull any local Idaho fishing guide or fishing charter boat Captain aside and ask him how’s the fishing in Idaho and listen to him tell you about how great Idaho fishing really is. They will begin to tell you about all the lakes and reservoirs and the 42 available Idaho fish species just out there waiting to be caught. From many hundreds of high mountain lakes to hundreds of deep water canyons the Idaho fishing guides will tell you about the spectacular trout fishing that keeps them very busy.

Idaho Fishing Guides

Idaho fishing guides will tell you the state is indeed famous for its fishing. Idaho fishing guides fish more than 10 world-class trout streams, including the Henrys Fork, Silver Creek and the St. Joe River, which are scattered throughout the state. Many other high-quality trout streams exist that don’t get the headlines and the crowds but still have some top quality trout fishing. The mountainous regions of Idaho contain more than 1,500 high mountain lakes with good trout fishing and many professional Idaho fishing guides to fish them. Numerous large natural lakes and reservoirs provide a wide variety of fishing opportunities for warm and cold-water species. In contrast to some states, most Idaho fishing waters are located in the public domain, and are open to the public.
