"South Fork Hilton" | Overnight Fly Fishing on the Snake River

1-3 Guests • Tent • Public • Guided


Our #1 requested trip! The two-day 26-mile float is a chance to experience dry fly-fishing at its finest.

The South Fork Overnight Fly Fishing Adventure takes anglers to one of the premier dry fly rivers in the country and treats them to two days of exceptional fly fishing. Our camp, fondly named the “South Fork Hilton” by many of our patron anglers, sits nestled against the pine-covered cliffs thirteen miles into the South Fork canyon. Inaccessibility by road helps ensure a quiet, personal experience rarely found in North America.

The first day is spent working flies over native and wild trout, either from the drift boat or wading. As the day progresses, your guide will row you into the heart of the West’s most coveted secret. When other anglers are back sharing stories around the dinner table, a warm comfortable fire and a mouth-watering meal are being prepared for you by the camp chef. Premium wine and beer and hors d’oeuvres will be waiting while you get acquainted with your own custom log framed wall tent complete with wood deck floor, fresh linens, sleeping bags, cots, and wash towels.

The morning starts with coffee and juice as the chef prepares a wonderful breakfast. All the while you are just a few yards from the river's edge. With the belly full and the gear back in order from all of the previous day's fishing, simply step into the boat and you are casting for trout again. The second day is a long 16 miles of braided water, deep within the canyon, giving anglers the opportunity to see all aspects of fly fishing. Floating your hopper pattern along the overhanging brush, sight casting to schools of rising trout on the gravel bars, or wading up some of the tiny side channels to catch big elusive browns are just a few examples of the diversity this river has to offer.


We primarily fish out of 3 person (2 anglers and 1 guide) row boat style drift boats. The boat fishes best with 1 or 2 anglers. We suggest only adding a third person when it is a child as three adults push the weight limits of the boat and do not provide adequate fishing to all people present. The boats all have good amounts of dry storage for your valuables and rain gear during the trip. They are very stable fishing platforms and with the built-in leg-locks, there is little chance of falling into the river.

*Base price is for 2 anglers (we fish 2 anglers to a boat).

For a third angler, select additional option at checkout.

Rules & Guidelines


We highly recommend travel insurance to ensure that you are covered in case of unavoidable last-minute circumstances, such as a delayed flight.

Other expenses

In addition to the price of the trip, you will be responsible for purchasing your own fishing license (about $12.75/$14.00 for a non-resident daily), a small selection of flies (8-15) selected for use by the guide for the day, and a gratuity for the guide if you do so choose at the end of the day.

What to wear

The weather in greater Yellowstone ecosystem consists of dry summer heat with occasional rainy days. Even though it may look sunny in the morning, weather moves quickly out here and it is always important to bring raingear in case of the occasional summer shower passing through. We suggest wearing shoes which you don’t mind getting wet (i.e. sandals, old sneakers, Crocs etc. ) as there will be times when you may need to get your feet wet getting in and out of the boat. Additionally, there will be times in the summer where wet wading, in water no deeper than mid calf, will be the best way to put both anglers on fish and it would be smart to have shoes which you don’t mind getting wet. The water temperatures in the summer are cool, but not too cold on the feet.

A hat and sunscreen are necessary for protection from the bright sun and the reflection off the water.

Sunglasses are an important piece of safety gear for protecting your eyes from swinging flies. Polarized glasses are the best choice as they cut down on the glare coming off the water and can help you spot fish.

In the late spring and early fall months, it is advisable to bring along a sweater and jacket for the cooler mornings and evenings. Also in these months it is advisable to bring waders for wading and for getting in and out of the boat.
