Sun Valley is well-known throughout the global fly fishing community as one of the top blue ribbon destinations for trout and steelhead fishing in North America. Local rivers include the Big Wood, the Big Lost, the Copper Basin system, the Little Wood, the Salmon river and of course, world-renowned Silver Creek, one of the finest and most technical spring creeks in the United States.

Sun Valley Outfitters is proud to offer half and full day guided fishing excursions on all of these rivers and their tributaries year round. If you are a beginning angler and are looking to begin your fly fishing career or an experienced veteran looking to add a few more tools to your tool box, SVO can connect you with just the right guide to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
Sun Valley Outfitters flyfishing trips include transportation (we'll pick you up!), guiding, beverages, flies, leaders and tippet. Full day trips also include lunch. Guide trips do not include rental equipment (available upon request) or guide gratuities.
In addition to spectacular trout fishing, SVO also offers spring steelhead flyfishing on the Salmon river! These sea-run rainbows can approach 40" in length and are an amazing target species at the foot of the Sawtooth Mountains! SVO also owns a private riverside lodge which serves as basecamp for multi-day bookings. We highly recommend this option! To view our online Steelhead photo gallery, click here!
Sun Valley Outfitters also offers private casting instruction and summertime kid's day camps from July through September. Why not make flyfishing the new family sport? Oh the places you'll go!
