Blue Ribbon Fly Fishing – Big Creek, Idaho

Fishing Big Creek Idaho in the Frank Church Wilderness is as good or better than any fishing you can find in the West. Idaho state has some incredible cutthroat fishing in Kelly Creek, the Lochsa River and the Selway River, but Big Creek takes the #1 spot in our opinion. Get ready for truly epic fly fishing trip for native Westslope cutthroat trout!

  • Species: Walk and wade fishing for native Westslope cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, bull trout, steelhead and whitefish.
  • Fishing Season: August through early September.
