South Fork Lodge, Snake River, Idaho

The South Fork Lodge offers exclusive lodge based fly fishing adventures on the Snake River, in Eastern Idaho.

South Fork Lodge rests on a dramatic bend of eastern Idaho’s world-famous South Fork of the Snake River in scenic Swan Valley. This stunning wilderness location effortlessly blends rustic elegance with outstanding activities and exceptional hospitality. Outfitters and guides will ensure an unforgettable time on the river, no matter your fly-fishing experience.

South Fork Lodge specializes in corporate retreats where the only distractions are the sound of the rushing river and calls from the local population of bald eagles. Productive group sessions and amazing fishing experiences go hand in hand. Groups can meet in our private meeting room which features a secluded patio and views of the river.

The South Fork of the Snake is the lodge’s home river, offering approximately 65 miles of fishable waters. From the Palisades Reservoir to the confluence with Henry’s Fork, the South Fork is immense, and every mile offers unmatched trout fishing. The “Upper” South Fork starts at Palisades Dam and ends at the Conant Valley boat access. This section encompasses approximately 15 river miles and is the most accessible. From the Irwin access, the river opens up as it meanders through Swan Valley. The side channels and the shallow riffles offer excellent wading opportunities and some of the best dry fly fishing on the river.

Lower down, the “Canyon” is the section of the South Fork beginning at the Conant Valley boat access down to the Byington boat access. The float from Conant to Cottonwood is about 15 miles, so once you’re in the canyon, you’re in for the day. South Fork Outfitters is also able to offer guests use of their private access about 12 miles down from the Conant boat ramp. Private ramp access ensures your day in the canyon is tranquil and unrushed, allowing you to spend a day in some of East Idaho’s most dramatic country. Below Byington, the nature of the river once again changes and flows through a cottonwood forest. This stretch of the river covers approximately 25 miles.

The South Fork Lodge is an elegant Western lodge built along the banks of a dramatic bend of the world-famous South Fork of the Snake River in Swan Valley, Idaho. The lodge’s rustic beauty provides world-class fly fishing and exceptional hospitality, all in a stunning wilderness location. Its secluded setting and luxury amenities provide a truly one-of-a-kind experience for each angler that visits the lodge.
