Sun Valley, Idaho
September 15-19, 2023
We have partnered with a group of talented guides from Silver Creek Outfitters that includes Amanda Bauman, Julie Meissner 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. On Monday 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.

Some of our guides will include:
Julie has been guiding flyfishing trips for over 25 years and river trips for more than 40 years in the Sun Valley and Stanley areas. She is also a certified casting instructor and has a passion for the outdoors.
Her thoughts about a day on the river: “I think if you want to be a great guide you have to be a teacher who is attuned to the importance of catching fish. Rarely do I guide a trip that doesn’t incorporate sharing and teaching opportunities for not only fishing, but for plants, geology and even local gossip. The teaching may be formal or more subtle, but it’s hard not to learn something on the river every time you go out.”

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.
