Silver Creek, Idaho -Women's Trip

September 11-15, 2024

There are a multitude of flyfishing options in the hiding spot of the rich and famous. This part of Idaho is beautiful all year long but the fall colors and warm days in September are extra special. The Wood River and Silver Creek are world renown fisheries right in the heart of the ‘Valley’. Other area options also include the Salmon River in the Sawtooth Mountain Range or into Copper Basin, home of the tributaries to the Lost River and the headwaters of the Lost River itself.

We have partnered with a group of talented guides from Silver Creek Outfitters that includes Amanda Bauman and Jill Clark. We’ll rely on their knowledge of recent fishing to pair each day’s adventure with your skills and goals. The first two days are beautiful walk / wade trips. The third day we will be floating the Salmon river near Stanely, Idaho which is absolutely spectacular in the fall! We’ve got some great condos on the golf course on the edge of town. After returning from a day of fishing you can relax on the deck with a glass of wine and appetizers or take a dip in the pool.

Elevation and Activity Level: We will be staying at 5,850' in elevation and the fishing locations will vary slightly but are close to that. This trip includes two days of walk / wade fishing and one day of floating. Wading days will include a bit of moderate hiking to move you between ideal locations as local hatches and conditions might dictate.

Silver Creek Outfitters

A tradition in the Wood River Valley since 1963, Silver Creek Outfitters has evolved from a small family-owned fly shop to a highly respected family-owned retailer and outfitter. Sun Valley is surrounded by many of the finest, most breathtaking and most productive trout streams in the world and a stop at Silver Creek Outfitters puts the majesty of these waters at your fingertips.

Some of our guides will include:
Amanda Bauman

Amanda Bauman is a born and bred Idaho native. After leaving the Gem State to attend college in Montana, she was lured back to the Wood River Valley by the pull of family and a lifestyle she embraces. “Being somewhat self-taught I remember vividly the first fish I caught on a dry fly on the East Fork of the Bitterroot River. It was that calm summer evening that I fell in love with fishing.” Silver Creek’s website shares many of her great reviews from clients of all levels.

Jill Clark

Jill Clark originally hails from Hagerman, Idaho, which may explain her affinity for local waters. An expert on the region, she has called Idaho home for nearly 50 years. Fishing caught her attention when she was a little girl and her grandmother took her out on the Snake River where she caught a trout with a corn kernel on her hook. “At that point,” I was hooked, Jill laughed.

Jill taught school for many years and loves teaching on the water when she guides. Jill explains, “I don’t think that the teaching element of my life will ever go away. I figure that teaching a skill, demonstrating, and then letting a client try it out is the best way of actually getting a client into the catching mode.
