Wilderness Fishing

The combination of limited access and rugged terrain provides our guests with one of the least fished streams in the northwest. Our ranch controls the access in the bottom of the 2,500 ft. deep canyon, and anyone else wishing to fish it must hike off the canyon rim and then climb back out again. This gives us miles and miles of essentially private stream.

The fish are all native rainbows and range in length from 6-18 inches. The stream is 20-30 feet wide with an average depth of one foot. For the serious fly fisherman, June, September, and October are the premier months to consider. Early booking is a good idea, as we limit the number of trips each year to retain the quality fishing.

Because each party likes to do things a bit differently, we have designed the following options for our fishing trips and we will be glad to customize any of them to fit your needs:

You have the house and the entire ranch to yourself, with private access to the trailhead and the adjoining Forest Service lands.

We provide an experienced guide to accompany you through out the day, and bring you back to the house on horseback when you are fishing down country, or by vehicle if you have fished upstream.

Let us do all the work. You just bring clothes, fishing gear, and a hearty appetite. After breakfast we will fish any stretch of water you'd like, have a streamside lunch, fish all afternoon, and return to the house for dinner each evening.
