Join your friends at Minturn Anglers for another awesome destination trip to Idaho. We will be making our annual pilgrimage to The Clearwater River in north central Idaho for HUGE steelhead. These fish have traveled over 700 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean just to eat YOUR flies! This is a great trip to participate in because we will be there all month so the schedule is flexible, we can pick you up and drop you off from the local airport and everything is include in the price except your flight, fishing license and flies/rods/reels!
Cost: $450 per angler per day
In a few words: TRIP OF A LIFETIME!
After over a week of steelhead fishing in South Central Alaska, we left with smiles on our faces, steelhead stink on our hands and endless pictures of the fishing and scenery. The best day by far was a float trip with 14 steelhead landed out of 18 hooked. Silver Salmon and Dolly Varden were biting as well and provided non-stop action every day of the week. Don’t miss out next year, whatever you do!
With the expansion of our Minturn and Denver locations, we have loaded up on fly tying materials. We are now carrying a variety of different fly tying vendors with MANY more to come at both locations. Stop by, tie a fly and check out the latest offerings from the best in the fly tying biz!

It’s that time of year and our friend, the brown trout is getting ready to reproduce. Regardless of where you are fishing, take a good look at this photo and if you see anything like this in your local brown trout stream, please avoid it. A cleaned out shallow gravel stretch of river is where the trout are gettin’ busy! Don’t fish over these trout or cross the river within 15 yards of the redd. Thanks!
