The Story

Join Orvis and Trout Unlimited for a women’s-only group fly-fishing trip to Idaho, with accommodations at The Lodge at Palisades Creek. We’ve teamed up with Trout Unlimited to create a unique and exciting fishing experience. Our goal is to bring more women in the sport of fly fishing through the 50/50 On the Water initiative and we think there's no better place than at one of America's most beautiful rivers the South Fork of the Snake River in Idaho's Swan Valley. Fly fish and explore one of Idaho's premiere fisheries with a small group of women from Orvis and TU at The Lodge at Palisades Creek and give back to TU's STREAM Girls Program. The Lodge at Palisades Creek offers all-inclusive fly-fishing trips year-round and waterfowl hunting in the Fall. Their Orvis-Endorsed lodge and fly shop are open from May through October. Founded in 1990, the lodge has been the choice of fly-fishing enthusiasts who want a world-class experience in every part of their trip.

Accommodations at The Lodge at Palisades Creek are rustic but luxurious individual log cabins, each located within casting distance of the Snake River. There are nine cabins, each with a private bathroom and king or two twin bed configurations, and a private deck to enjoy the views of the river. The "Liar's Den" is a great communal meeting spot in the lodge that houses a fully stocked bar, pool table, and a full library of books and games. Founded in 1990, the lodge has been the choice of fly-fishing enthusiasts who want a world-class experience in every part of their trip.


The closest commercial airports to the lodge are Idaho Falls, Idaho (IDA) which is 47 miles away, and, Jackson Hole, Wyoming (JAC) about 70 miles away. Transfers to and from these airports can be arranged for an additional fee. Upon arrival, you'll have a chance to settle in before appetizers and dinner.

Fishing Days:

Your days will start in the Cowboy Breakfast Bar. The staff serves breakfast from 7:00–9:00 AM. They offer a light continental breakfast bar as well as a daily special prepared by our chef. The guides arrive at the fly shop at 8:00 AM. Guests are invited to head over to the fly shop shortly after 8:00 AM.

From the shop, your guide will chauffeur you to the river. On the water don't be shy to ask questions about casting, reading the water, etc. The guides are top-notch instructors and anglers. Lunch will be enjoyed streamside.

The day usually ends around 6:00 PM and your guide will bring you back to your private cabin. There, you can freshen up and head up to the lodge for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and dinner. Dinner usually includes salad, homemade bread, two entrée choices, and dessert.


A continental breakfast will be set up before departure. Make sure to check with reception to pay for any incidentals before departing.

The South Fork of the Snake is an extremely productive fishery, offering native Snake River cutthroat, rainbow, hybrid (cutbow), and brown trout. The South Fork starts with nymph fishing in the early summer, and then transitions to dry-fly fishing by the end of June and through September. Fall offers great dry-fly and streamer fishing. The dates chosen for this trip are during prime dry-fly fishing on the South Fork. The main stem of the Snake River from Idaho Falls to the reaches below American Falls Reservoir offers excellent fishing for trout, bass, and even carp. Several of the guides spend their winters near Pocatello to guide on the Snake River, as winter fishing on this section offers great chances of catching trout.
