Summer Fly Fishing During August and September, we offer great small stream fly-fishing on several tributaries of the Main Salmon River, offering miles of water to explore right from the lodge. Most fish caught are Rainbows, Bull Trout and Cutthroat trout. Most of the streams are within a short jet boat ride from the ranch. These streams are very productive for those willing to walk and wade, and while the fish are not huge the fish are plentiful and the serenity un-matched. The Ram House Lodge on Mackay Bar is the ultimate adventure vacation no matter what brings you here.
