Salmon River Angler guides represent the best guides and instructors in central Idaho. This small, select group of guides are chosen for their fishing expertise and knowledge, but invited back year after year due to their exceptional client care.

SRA guides follow the fish. They spend July and August introducing the Sun Valley angler to the freestone headwaters of the Salmon River on our 1 day float trips. Starting in mid-August they make the homage to Frank Church Wilderness, where cool nights heat up the Middle Fork’s legendary cutthroat trout fishery.
