Guiding You to the Big Ones

We are proud of our fly fishing guides, and their dedication to putting clients on BIG FISH, but we also take pride in getting people into their “first” fish on a fly rod. We specialize in walk and wade trips on the beautiful North Fork of the Couer d’Alene River (Idaho Outfitter #17908), but we also want to make sure you are getting the best trip for you circumstances when you are in the area. We have great connections with other outfitters and guides and are more than happy to facilitate trips to other local areas by way of acting as a booking agent.

Northwest Outfitters’ Guides know the waterways of the Inland Northwest, as well as what flies are working at a particular time on each river. When they’re not guiding, our guys are out fishing around the region on their own. So before you go out, check our River Reports daily and give the shop a call. We’ll share with you what our guides are telling us about what’s biting. Better yet, come in to the shop and we’ll show you the flies that will help you hook into the BIG ONES.
