Fishing

More than 300 lakes and four major river drainage’s within a 20 mile radius make this area heaven on earth for anglers. Equally rewarding fishing for trout, salmon, steelhead, perch and smallmouth bass can be found in rivers, reservoirs and alpine lakes throughout the region.

Popular forks of the Salmon include the South Fork, East Fork of the South Fork, Middle Fork, as well as important tributaries like the Little Salmon, and Big Creek in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness area.

At 5,300 acres, Payette Lake boasts three species of trout: rainbow, cutthroat and lake trout, as well as Kokanee. Downstream lies Lake Cascade, a 28,000-acre reservoir with a diverse fishery, including small mouth bass, rainbow trout, Kokanee, Coho salmon, crappie and yellow perch.

Alpine Lakes
