High Mountain Lake Fishing

  • This special feature can be highlighted in most all trips. If you are an avid fly fisherman or only a novice, please don't hesitate to let us know and we will design each day's destination with fishing as the primary activity.

  • If you do not have the proper equipment than we can help. We do not only have fly-fishing but also spinning outfits, which you can rent.

  • Expect to catch cutthroat, rainbow and brook trout.

  • Don't forget your Idaho Fishing License. You can purchase your three-day license upon arriving in Challis from a number of local vendors

Combination Pack-Trip/ Hot Springs Soak/Scenic Float

  • This custom trip offers the best of everything! After arriving in Challis, the following day we will first schedule a guided/catered three-day pack trip into our base camp, right under Castle Peak. 

  • From here you will have the opportunity to take photos, enjoy scenery, view wildlife and do some fishing in one of the nearby alpine lake chains.

  • After enjoying two nights in our comfortable camp, we will depart the high country for Challis and the Salmon River. Since we arrange for a full day in between trips, there will be plenty of time to enjoy a swim/soak at the historic Challis Hot Springs courtesy of White Cloud Outfitters.

  • The next day, you will launch on the famous River of No Return for a two-day catered float with your experienced boatman/guide.

  • All of your riverside camping gear will be provided except your sleeping bag. 

  • This is a great combination trip especially for those new to this area!
