Sawtooth Wilderness Fishing Vacations: There is nothing like the peace and solitude of a fly fishing trip into a high mountain lake. Truly a fisherman's paradise, the Sawtooth Wilderness supports a large number of crystal clear lakes with Cutthroat, Rainbow, Brook trout and Arctic Greyling. Due to the remoteness and limited access to these wilderness alpine lakes, angling pressure is light. Whether you are a novice spin caster or a seasoned fly fisherman, come join Sawtooth Wilderness Guides for some of the finest trout fishing in the West. Let them be your backcountry fishing outfitters. Exploring the high mountain lakes is a great way to combine hiking, horseback riding and camping with Idaho fishing. Sawtooth Wilderness Outfitters provides quality horse pack trips and hiking options to accommodate you on your fishing adventure. There are a variety of trips to choose from. You can take a fully furnished package where we provide all the camping gear, food, do the cooking and camp chores, or you can use the drop service where Sawtooth Wilderness Outfitters transports you and your equipment to a high mountain lake so you can fish and explore on your own.

Eliminating a heavy backpack allows adventurers of all ages and ability to explore at ease.

Hiking with Pack Stock Using Your Equipment and Food: Sawtooth Wilderness Outfitters can either drop your equipment at a prearranged destination of your choice or your packer will continue on with you for a progressive trip. You will be responsible for your own camp chores and cooking. Your packer will take care of all stock and transporting your gear. On progressive trips the packer will provide his own camping equipment, food, riding horse and will be responsible for his own camp chores. Progressive trips require that the packer has a pack horse in addition to his riding horse. Price is based on a 150 pound weight limit per packhorse and an eight hour round trip day. Along with the weight, it is important to remember that the size of your items are a factor on how much you can put on a horse. Try to minimize both the size and weight of all items. Because of the sheer bulk of items and the size of the pack a horse can carry, loads may not always be able to weigh 150 pounds. Women in Wilderness: Each year Sawtooth Outfitters offers trips for the ladies only. These trips can be either fully furnished or a packing service. We offer trips for both horseback enthusiasts and backcountry hikers. Please contact us to check on the dates for this year's specialty trips.
