Fishing begins in Kamiah, Idaho!  The magnificent steelhead trout, measuring up to 45 inches in length, and the chinook salmon travel up the Clearwater to spawn. There are both fall and spring seasons for these beauties, whitefishing in the winter, and trout and bass fishing during the summer, giving anglers plenty of variety.  With well-stocked creeks and mountain lakes an hour or two hike away, the Clearwater and its tributaries are considered some of the finest fishing streams in the country.



Kamiah lies not far from the great primitive area of Idaho where big game hunting is at its best.  The nation's largest elk herd is located not far from here, and deer, bear, mountain lion, pheasant and grouse are plentiful.  Special hunts for moose and mountain goat are drawn by lot by the Idaho Fish and Game Department.
