Chukar Season is over, so it feels good for me and my dog to get rested up. And the best way to do that is to sit in a driftboat and fish for the mighty redsides and watch bald eagles scan the river for fish and ducks. Occassionally, herds of elk can be seen, too, so that is an added bonus. Not to mention a few bighorn sheep.
February is the month when steelhead picks up in our area. So yesterday is not too soon to give us a call and make a date. The weather can be somewhat challenging at times, but we do have heaters, so don’t be shy.
Steelhead trips are at the same rate this year. See price page.
Spring steelhead season closes March 31, 2020 in the area we are licensed as an outfitter-guide service.
The limit is 1 fish per day. Possession – 3 fish.
Yes, these adventures are soon to come. The first potential whitewater trips occur on the Owyhee River from March – June. Our put-in launch dates are every Tuesday.
- Also available is my book:
Idaho’s Salmon River Chronicles
Reflections of a River Guide
Gary Lane’s Oar Lore
Amazon customer review: “Those of us who have run rivers with Gary know him to be a superb yarn spinner while around a campfire and while floating down Western waterways. This book is part biography, part compendium of river lore, and part call for an ecologically minded effort to enjoy and preserve all the grandeur of our natural wilderness. This volume will appeal to those who know Gary but also to those who haven’t yet had the pleasure of befriending and learning from one of the most interesting guys you’ll ever meet, on or off the river. There’s a lot here to enjoy.”
Available: signed copies at our shop, and/or kindle version or paperback at Amazon.
