Frequently Asked Questions
Join Salmon River Anglers and learn the art of fly fishing. Jared, SRA owner & outdoor educator, has designed this trip to mimic the instruction & progression of his Beginner Fly Fishing course taught at the University of Utah. This trip is perfect for beginners offering basic casting technique, equipment knowledge and water reading skills. Your SRA guide is a patient teacher with a wealth of local knowledge.
This classic freestone river offers a variety of nymph and dry fly opportunities. The gin-clear, slow moving water of the upper section from town to Mormon Bend boat ramp offers the ideal classroom to learn basic skills.
Best Time of Year
The fishing starts to pick up on the Salmon following spring runoff. Around mid July we see a spike in the number of fish caught per day and that number continues to grow throughout summer. Anglers can expect to catch cut-bow hybrid trout ranging from 8-12 inches.
Why fish from a boat?
Simply put, fly fishing from a boat is easier. No longer is the perfect cast required. Due to the nature of fishing from a boat it is much easier to create a realistic fly presentation, even for beginners. SRA guides are down-to-earth anglers with an abundance of local knowledge, patience and great technical teaching skills.
