The South Fork of the Snake River is one of those great fly fishing rivers in the western U.S. about which you hear very little. Jim and Kelly team up with Hyde Outfitters of Idaho Falls for exciting float trips... Fishing and camping down the South Fork to get a sample of why this is considered a premier river and a great way to fully appreciate one of nature's spectacles of beauty.
The South Fork is big water, with terrific hopper banks and deep runs punctuated by riffles and side channels. 80 miles of floatable river with perfect habitat for an extraordinary population of cutthroat and brown trout. Dry flies and big attractors on top, small nymphs below and banging the banks with streamers. The South Fork of the Snake flows through farmlands and deep high walled canyons creating a wide variety of fly fishing challenges.
