Owyhee River Guided TripsThe Owyhee River is a tail water fishery and home to one of the most incredible brown trout fisheries in North America. Fishing the Owyhee offers remarkable chances to catch large trout on 4-6 weight fly rods on dry flies. Even the largest brown trout, can be very active surface feeders. Fish average 17-21 inches, with larger fish not uncommon.
The Owyhee River is a very special fishery and we look forward to sharing it with you. Guided fishing is all walk-and-wade on the Owyhee River. The Owyhee is a year-round fishery with summer flows around 300 cfs, while winter flows average 30 cfs through this beautiful canyon.
Spring fishing kicks off with the exciting Squalla stonefly hatch along with consistent mid-day blue-winged olive and midge hatches. May and June bring Pale Morning Dun, Callibaetis, many types of caddis, with ants and beetles marking the start of terrestrial fishing. Mid-summer adds the excitement of hopper fishing to the mix of hatchers already underway – some years, the hopper fishing can be stunning!
Fall weather brings Mahogany and Baetis hatches, which continue into the fall brown trout spawning season (Nov-Dec). At this time, we leave the trout in the Owyhee River alone and shift our focus to swinging steelhead flies on the Grande Rhonde and Idaho rivers.
This river has many hatches throughout the year. Idaho Angler guides are up to speed on current conditions and hatches and can help you have a fun and productive day on this amazing river.
