There's always something outdoors to do no matter what season your visiting us in. Of course we are best known for our majestic rivers and large national forests but the culture around the Clearwater Valley is also something to be desired. The people are friendly and there are a variety of local hang outs that you certainly won't forget anytime soon.
The Clearwater River is a fisherman's paradise and boasts some of the best steelhead fishing in the country. Besides our incredible steelhead we have Chinook salmon, rainbow trout, bass, whitefish and several other popular game fish. The best time of year for steelhead is January through April. Take a look at the Idaho fishing regulations here. Play the video to the right to see some of our guest and the amazing fishing in our area!
North Central Idaho is a top destination for all types of hunters. From birds to big game, our region features a large population of elk and whitetail deer. Hunters will also find mountain goats, bighorn sheep, moose, cougar and black bear.
Rafting & Kayaking
During the summer it's almost impossible not to see excited groups of kayakers and rafters barreling down the tricky rapids of Lochsa, Selway and Middle fork rivers.
Snowmobiling & Skiing
Although we don't get much snow down on the river in Stites you don't have to go but a few miles out of town to find incredible snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.
Hiking & Backpacking
There are hundreds of miles of National Forest Trails to guide you into beautiful lakes, crystal clear rivers and remote hot springs.
Within close driving distance you will find great roads and trails for enjoying your recreational vehicles.
