Local Guides are a stone’s throw from the lodge.
Local guides are available and can assist you with the skills necessary to master the art of fly fishing. They love what they do and take great pleasure in sharing their craft with you. Their knowledge and guidance will make your fly fishing experience a distinguished and delightful one. Within a short distance of Island Park are more pristine Blue Ribbon trout streams and originating headwater rivers than you’ll find anywhere else in North America.
To make a reservation or find out more information about guided fly fishing trips, we recommend contacting our local outfitter and flyshops to get up to date information and current availability.
Surrounded by countless local access points.
In this wonder of the world of cold, fresh water fishing where hundreds of rivers, lakes, and creeks teem with all species of trout and where thousands of miles of streams emerge from headwaters and meander through two national parks, one state park and seven national forests, are countless fishing opportunities for the most discerning angler. Anglers’ Lodge on the bank of the Henry’s Fork in Island Park, Idaho is a few feet from the home of trophy trout measuring up to thirty inches in length. Henry’s Fork, a catch and release stream, is the site of the world famous Green Drake Hatch, affording the fly fisherman the ultimate in fishing opportunity.
Just upstream from our lodge is scenic Box Canyon. For some incredible action try drifting your Golden Stone Nymph through the backwaters and riffles of this wonder of nature. Upstream 15 miles is famous Henry’s Lake, home of the state records for Rainbow, Cutthroat, Hybrid, and Brook Trout.
The Henry’s Fork Foundation is an excellent resource for anglers. The Henry’s Fork offers a vast array of public access sites for anglers looking to experience one of the world's great trout streams. The Angler Access Map below shows the layout of the river and the location of these access sites, while the Angler Access Sites documents provide a more in-depth look at each site’s location and amenities.
Fly fishing trips and countless other outdoor pursuits are at your door.
At the Anglers’ Lodge, we make memories that last a lifetime. The perfect fishing trip may include a day at Cave Falls or working a dry fly through that gentle bend on the Madison River. Perhaps a day of horseback riding through the beauty of Harriman State Park, a drive through Yellowstone Park, or the short drive from the Angler’s Lodge to Mesa Falls (One of Idaho’s best kept scenic secrets) would be on your agenda. The sighting of the Trumpeter Swan that calls the Henry’s Fork home could be that special memory with you.
