Lodging Details

This lodge was designed by an award-winning architect and has been nominated for several national architecture awards for its unique combination of elegance and comfort. The view of the Henry's Fork River from the deck of the lodge is incredible. There are six rooms in the main lodge, including two deluxe suites with fireplaces and expansive views of the river, and one unit with a separate bedroom and living room. The eight cottage suites all offer separate bedrooms and sitting rooms with fireplaces. The lodge’s decor is highly distinctive and features wood paneling, original paintings, antique furniture and curated Native American wall hangings. The lodge also offers phones in each room and high-speed Internet access throughout the facilities.

Food and Beverages

Dining is always an amazing experience at the lodge and the menu changes daily to reflect what’s fresh and in-season. The lodge was the first restaurant in Idaho to become a member of the Seafood Choices Alliance, showing its commitment to economically and socially sustainable fisheries. A cold breakfast buffet offers fresh fruit, yogurt, homemade granola, cold cereals and fresh pastries made by the in-house Pastry Chef. Lunches are custom-made to guest preferences for guided days, complete with fresh made-to-order sandwiches, homemade soups and pastas, fruit salads and delicious baked goods.

Non-anglers remaining at the lodge for the day can be assured an equally satisfying lunch served on the porch overlooking the river. The lodge managers will adjust dinner times to “match the hatch,” so you never have to choose between dinner and the evening rise. The lodge culinary team are experts from top restaurants in the country and work hard to create a new menu every night during your stay. New, sumptuous surprises will be available every night, from elk tenderloin to Hawaiin opah. Simply put, we predict that the food at the lodge will be the finest you have ever experienced at a fishing operation anywhere in the world!

The Fishing Grounds

The Henry’s Fork River

The spring creek sections of Harriman Park and the fast water of Box Canyon are world-famous. Guides can also show you lesser-known downstream sections. This river offers the ultimate challenge to sophisticated anglers and can also be very productive for novice fly fishers. It can be fished both by wading and floating in a drift boat. The Henry’s Fork River is spring fed and its flows are moderated by a reservoir, so it runs clear throughout the season.

The South Fork of the Snake

This Idaho river can be fished from the lodge with certain South Fork licensed guides. The South Fork offers prolific hatches and eager cutthroats along with chances for rather large brown trout. August, September and October are the most consistent months. Boats are essential, though some fishing can be done by wading the mid-river riffles and islands.

The Madison River

The Madison River originates in Yellowstone National Park from the confluence of the Gibbon and Firehole Rivers. In the Park, it has the quiet character of a spring creek and you may be accompanied by bison, elk or swans as you wade for browns and rainbows. Outside the Park, the river flows for more than 40 miles offering great dry fly and nymph fishing either from a boat or by wading. The Madison fishes best in the heart of summer when prolific caddis hatches and an abundance of terrestrials like hoppers and ants draw the fish to the surface and to dry flies.

The Firehole and Gibbon Rivers

These two small to medium-sized rivers are largely spring fed and flow together to form the Madison River. Influenced by geysers and hot springs, they fish well with dry flies early and late in the season.

Hebgen Lake

The home of the “gulpers” – rainbows and browns that cruise the surface gobbling mayflies on summer mornings. You can use float tubes and canoes here for a stealthy approach. It is common to fish Hebgen with dries until midday, then go to a river for a different experience in the afternoon.

Henry’s Lake

One of the best and most famous fly fishing lakes in Idaho and home to the state record brookie. Primarily a Yellowstone Cutthroat fishery, you can also fish for big brookies and rainbow-cutthroat hybrids up to 7 pounds on sinking lines or with dry-dropper rigs in the fall.

Boats and Equipment

The guides on the Henry’s Fork River use several different types of boats, depending upon the type of water to be fished. River drift boats are used by all of the guides to float the more than 30 different float sections on the Henry’s Fork, South Fork and Madison Rivers. Twin pontoon catarafts are used to float some of the whitewater canyons of the Henry’s Fork. Some of the guides also use powerboats for the lakes where they can move and maneuver quickly from one spot to another. There are several local fly shops in the area that carry the finest in flies, tackle, and equipment for your convenience no matter where your travels take you.

When & Where to Fish

The salmonfly hatch on the Henry's Fork typically begins during the third week in May and marks the beginning of the summer dry fly season. The period from the middle of June through July is by far the busiest time of the year. During that period availability of guides and accommodations can be very limited. The fishing season on the Harriman State Park is open to fishing from June 15 through November 30. There is almost always something hatching every day of the season. The fishing season in Yellowstone Park opens on Memorial Day weekend and continues through the first Sunday of November. Some waters, including the Yellowstone do not open until July 15. The Upper Madison in Montana below Quake Lake is open from the third Saturday in May through the end of February.
