Guided fly-fishing with Sun Valley Outfitters

The Wood River Valley, which encompasses Ketchum and Sun Valley, has been a destination for outdoor enthusiasts for decades. What the causal vacationer may not know is that one can book a guided fly-fishing trip and have a day of angling on some of the best fly-fishing waters in the Lower 48 states.  These waters have drawn generations of anglers looking to experience the same beauty and serenity as the likes of Earnest Hemingway, who was known to wade and fish these waters with fond enthusiasm.   

Whether you are staying in the historic Sun Valley Lodge, the new and hip Lime Light Hotel, or traveling through in your RV, a day of fly-fishing our babbling freestone streams or floating the gin clear spring creek waters of Silver Creek will be a memory to be cherished.  Our guides have a personal passion for fishing these waters and are ready to help create a memorable experience for each angler; from the most experienced looking to meet the challenge of Silver Creek, to the “first timer” yet to experience the surge of adrenaline and racing heart of a fish on the line but is ready to give fly-fishing a try. In fact, our guides connection to the fly-fishing in this area is so deep, if you ask them, they’ll likely tell you they arrived in the area for a variety of reasons but stayed for the fly-fishing.  

If you don’t have gear, don’t worry.  We have a full fleet of ORVIS gear for rent. Rentals can be used on both guided trips and for private days out on the water (based on availability).
