Guided Salmon Fishing and Steelhead Fishing on Clearwater River, Idaho
Clearwater River is known for its chinook (king) salmon fishing. Indeed, chinook salmon is the most preferred fish meat in the world. Consumers love its tender pink meat and mouthwatering mild flavor. It's not too fishy, but it's far from bland. Still, people overlook the tasty meat of steelhead trout.
While Clearwater salmon gets all the attention for its flavorful meat, steelhead often gets overlooked. Truthfully, the steelhead is delightful fish meat. On a typical guided fishing day, our visitors pull between 20-30 medium-large steelhead from the river. With each steelhead averaging 13 lbs, that's a lot of fish to bring home.
