Reserve your fishing adventure!
As the premier Steelhead fishery in Idaho, the Clearwater River in North Central Idaho is steeped in fishing history. Here at Anglers Edge Adventures, we are permitted to fish nearly 30 miles of non-motorized, Steelhead habitat. Steelhead are large, ocean-going rainbow trout native to Idaho and the Pacific Northwest region. They make their way from the ocean in the early fall and stay with us through mid-late Spring, making it simply one of North America's most robust, exciting fishing experiences.
The Steelhead Trout of Idaho are anadromous rainbow trout that have made their way from the Pacific Ocean, a journey of over 500 miles. Steelhead spawn in the Clearwater River of Idaho, and depending on the fish, they may mature in fresh or saltwater for the first two to three years of their lives, always returning to their original birthplace to spawn. Steelhead, unlike Salmon, can spawn many times in their lifetime and can make the trip from the Ocean to the Clearwater River Valley numerous times in their life.
Steelhead trout are considered one of the top five freshwater gamefish in North America. Unlike their freshwater counterpart, Steelhead can grow to a length of 45" and have the ability to accelerate to 25 mph in one second; they can put up a good fight at the end of your line and make for a great day of fishing. Drifting through their permitted waters, Anglers Edge Adventures is ready to host your next fishing trip and prepared to help you land your first or your next Steelhead.
