The Idaho Fisherman – Priest Lake Fishing Trips – About Priest Lake

I take great pride in being able to provide you with the absolute best fishing experiences for the time of year you are here.

Priest Lake, offers the most consistent fishing/catching for lake trout aka Mackinaw that exists in our region.
The fishing here is excellent throughout the entire year. Average trout weigh from 3 to 8 pounds.We frequently land trout over 30 pounds.
These trips are a wonderful experience for your family during your summer vacation, the kids will love it. They also make excellent gifts, and are a great way for fishing enthusiasts to learn the tricks of the trade, to help them put more fish in their own boat.
Check out the photo galleries.
An average daily trip will see 8 to sometimes over 20 trout landed. Kokanee salmon ( landlocked sockeye), and smallmouth bass are also prime targets during spring and fall.
Daily trips include half and full day charters for up to six passengers. 2018 rates are based upon four passengers. $475. per half day,$875. per full day. Add $100. per additional passenger up to six passengers maximum. I guarantee you will catch trout or I will bring you back out for free.
