Fishing

Hunting and Fishing—The Perfect Combination

Cast and Blast trips are perfect for people who want to combine their passions for fishing and hunting. You’ll get to fish for trophy steelhead and hunt some of the world’s most sporting upland birds in Idaho’s  beautiful Lawyer’s Canyon at a one-of-a-kind destination that is dual endorsed by Orvis as both an Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge and an Orvis Endorsed Fly-Fishing Lodge.

Our fishing guides are passionate about the pursuit and enjoy guiding guests of all skill levels. They’ll take you by drift boat to the best fishing holes on the Clearwater River, where we land fish reaching 40 inches.

Wingshooting in the AM, Bass Fishing in the PM

This prime location provides great opportunities to fish for Bass and hunt birds in the same day.  Hunt our private 5,000 acres for upland birds then go 10 minutes to the Clearwater River to bass fish by drift boat.

Our Summer Fin and Feather trips are ideal for people looking to get as much hunting and fishing time in as possible.  They make a great family getaway before the start of school as well, and as always, youth are half price.

Enjoy chasing upland birds in the canyon during the morning and after a gourmet lunch, jump in a drift boat for a trip down the Clearwater River, home to great small mouth Bass

Wingshooting:
Season Dates: August 15-April 15

Find yourself in Lawyer Creek canyon where a mix of pheasant, Hungarian partridge, quail, and chukar flourish.  Hunt the valley for pheasant and coveys of huns & quail or test your skills on our famous chukar hunting on the ridge lines overlooking the canyon.   Hunt over the ranch’s German Shorthairs and English Pointers; they’re their pride and joy!

Wingshooting adventures include THREE- DAY / FOUR-NIGHT and TWO-DAY / THREE-NIGHT packages, as well as a CAST-and-BLAST package combining two days of wingshooting with one day of steelhead fishing in a single great package.

High Mountain Grouse Hunts:

Grouse hunting here will make you feel like you are on top of the world.  Views are breathtaking as you walk in on that German Shorthair holding point in that sub-alpine scrub brush.  With two species of grouse to hunt, bag limits for these wild birds are 4 per day.  A day of grouse hunting may be added to any of the early season wingshooting trips.

There is nowhere else in the country like it.  Traveling to the heart of the Rocky Mountains in search of what some believe to be the most sporting free-range upland game birds in the world.  Blue and Ruffed grouse flourish in the mountain ranges surrounding the ranch giving guests a chance to fill their bird vests with limits of both species.

Hunting over well trained German Shorthairs and English Pointers will create a bird hunting experience unimaginable.  Traveling almost 6000 vertical feet to your hunting destination, you will feel on top of the world with habitat and views you’ve never experienced.

There is no better place than this ranch to enjoy fishing for trophy steelhead paired with our world-class wingshooting.  As a dual Orvis Endorsed wingshooting and fishing Lodge, you will get the chance to fish the nationally recognized Clearwater River, as well as hunt behind some of the best upland hunting dogs in existence.

CAST-and-BLAST packages combine two days of wingshooting with one day of steelhead fishing in a single great package.  Base your trip right out of the rustic lodge and experience a true sportsman’s paradise.  Idaho’s Clearwater River is home to the legendary “B-run” steelhead that can produce that fish of a lifetime.  Depending on the age of the fish, it’s not uncommon to see fish caught 10 to 15 pounds with many exceeding 20 pounds!

Wingshooting is found right out the back door of the lodge where sportsmen can pursue chukar on the open slopes, the pheasant on the valley floor or the canyon fields for Hungarian partridge.  Hunting over thier very own lines of German Shorthairs and English Pointers will prove their dedication to providing world-class wingshooting.  Hunting areas are accessed by customized vehicles, and fishing is done out of drift boat.  Each outing is a personalized experience providing plenty of shooting with no bag limits and majestic views of the river.

Summer Fin & Feather Package:
Season:  August 15 – September 30
is another great cast & blast option. This option allows you to enjoy the same world class wingshooting in the morning combined with an afternoon fishing trip on the Clearwater River for fun small mouth bass.

September is the bomb for this trip. Water levels are dropping and the bass are eating everything! 2 anglers can catch 30-50 fish in an afternoon! You can fly fish or spin fish.  Soft plastics are a big hit with the bass.
