Fishing is a great family sport for any age, especially in the area of Grangeville Idaho.
Our rivers and lakes are full of steelhead, salmon, sturgeon, trout, bass, kokanee, dolly vardin and other favorite fish species.
North Central Idaho is legendary for its fishing and it’s no wonder. The Nez Perce people have fished from these clear waters since the beginning of time. Lakes, rivers, streams, reservoirs — its your choice. Some of the nation’s hottest steelhead (a rainbow trout over 20 inches) fishing is here.
Fishermen line the South Fork of the Clearwater River and the Salmon River when the steelhead and salmon fishing gets hot.
You won’t want to miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch a sturgeon in Hells Canyon on the Snake River. The largest freshwater fish in the United States, the white sturgeon can reach lengths in excess of 10 feet and weigh more than 1000 pounds.
Winchester Lake is a fabulous destination for many favorite fish species. The Winchester Lake Park is about 50 miles north of Grangeville in the community of Winchester Idaho.
