The Hoodoo is the perfect size river for fishing from the plentiful gravel bars that are available. The river is easily waded and allows for greater versatility to work areas where fish are abundant.  You can fly fish or use conventional spin cast gear. The Hoodoo River is a perfect river for the avid fly fisherman.  Many of our clients have had their first fly fishing experiences with us and primarily fly fish for the rest of their stays.  Our experienced guides are there to assist you in whatever method you prefer. Whether fly fishing or conventional tackle, their knowledge of the river and the most effective techniques are waiting to put you on the fish.

The Hoodoo yields abundant runs of the three most sought after salmon species.
