Snake River Adventures makes the scenic waterways of the Snake, Salmon, and Clearwater rivers accessible to outdoor enthusiasts and curious sightseers alike. Licensed jet-boat captains ferry groups through natural wonders, such as Hells Canyon—America's deepest and most inaccurately named river gorge—and manmade locales including the Kirkwood Historical Ranch and museum. Hunting and fishing expeditions may be chartered to snare the bass, trout, steelhead, and sturgeon swimming the waters as well as the big game roaming the shore. Comfortable camp may be made at Historic Sheep Creek Ranch—furnished with wood cook stoves and oil lamps—or the Kirby Creek Lodge bed and breakfast.
For licensed Idaho fishing guide Nate Luther, fishing is not only the art of casting lines—it’s a lifestyle. In the Snake River waters that flow near Hells Canyon, Luther shares this lifestyle with fishermen of all skill levels via his year-round guide services. He arms his passengers with fishing rods and tackle before they jet off in open-air boats ideal for catching rays of sun or super-long fly balls. During the summer, Luther’s trips hunt for catfish, sturgeon, trout and bass; in winter, he primarily focuses on schools of steelhead.
