Welcome to our Challis, Idaho Fishing Home Page

Challis is a small town in central Idaho.  This town isn’t as popular as some of the other areas that we covered in Idaho, but you will find some of the same adventures in Challis that you find in other towns.  The Salmon River offers excellent fishing and whitewater rafting adventures.  Steelhead fishing is good on the Salmon River as well as they migrate from the Pacific from the fall through the spring.


Primary Species of Fish


Steelhead, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout & Brook Trout

The steelhead migration here from fall through the spring is what draws many anglers to this area to fish.  You can catch other species of trout as well, but the steelhead get the most attention once they arrive into this stretch of the Salmon River.  Cutthroat trout and rainbow trout are also available in the Salmon River and the area tributaries.  Fish the mountain lakes for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and brook trout.
