Coeur d’Alene Adventures offers two regions to have many different adventures and fishing trips with great guides in the CDA Idaho and Western Montana areas.
Both North Idaho and Montana watersheds provide the opportunity to catch native cutthroat, rainbow, cuttbow, brown trout, and the occasional pike. We have guides for both fly fishing and spin fishing.
Full days and half days are available for both areas. We are one of the few outfitters that offer an incredible fishing and whitewater rafting combined trip. Think whitewater rapids and catching a 20” trout 30 seconds from each other while meandering through breathtaking scenery. We call it the combo trip on the Clark Fork River! Scroll through our options below.
All CDA area fly fishing trips meet at the river shop near Kingston, ID 35 minutes out of town. We track the river flows, follow the hatches, and understand how the wild and unpredictable weather affects our rivers and streams. Our season is Mid March through Mid November, weather and water level permitting. We pride ourselves on offering true North Idaho fly fishing trips. We feel blessed to be fly fishing Coeur d’Alene Idaho! Guided trips are an excellent way to learn how to fly fish and know what to fish with and when. All trips are private, singular experiences tailored to your skill level.
Spin and fly fishing is available for groups and individuals over the border into Montana on the mighty Clark Fork River. These trips meet in St. Regis, Montana 90 minutes away. Please let us know if you need transportation, perhaps one of our guides can pick you up on the way over. Our whitewater fly fishing trips meet at our headquarters for whitewater rafting and fishing at our private river shop located at 39 Juniper Lane, Alberton MT 59820. The Clark Fork boasts large trout, majestic views, and the occasional pike.
What’s Included: All fishing trips include private guide, fishing gear; this includes flies, rods, poles, tackle, (waders depending on guide and trip choice). We pack life jackets, soft drinks, water, mid day riverside lunch (for full day trips), boat or raft depending on river section, and transportation can be arranged in advance for pick up if needed. We provide a shuttle back to your vehicle post trip. Our trips combine fishing from boat and shore as these northwest rivers are best navigated by watercraft. We have room for one to two people on the Coeur d’Alene River. During the booking process, our Clark Fork trips allow a 3rd or 4th person. Two or three is ideal, four gets a bit crowded, but can still be a great time fishing in and out of the boat(s). We provide wetsuits, splash jackets, and water shoes for whitewater fishing trips as needed for comfort.
What to Bring: Pack sunglasses, a hat/visor, quick dry clothing, strapped sandals or water shoes, fishing licenses, sunscreen, sunwear, layered clothing for spring and fall, and swimwear if you’d like to take a dip to cool off during the summer in between casts.
