Great News for anyone looking for lodging this fall on the Salmon River!
Our apartment/ efficiency has just become a valuable for the following dates: September 1 - September 23, 2015; October 16 - October 22, 2015; October 25 - December 31, 2015. The apartment is the lower floor of the lodge and has it’s own entrance, there are two bedrooms, one full bathroom, a living room, dining room and large kitchen. It has a large fenced in yard (perfect for pets of any size) with a fire pit and grill. You can literally sit around the fire in the evening after a hard day fishing and tell stories while you hear the Salmon River in the background. The rate for the apartment is $40/ person/ night and there is a minimum of $80/ night. 
I am excited to announce that I will be running the lodge and guiding full time this fall! In addition we will be offering fish cleaning for our customers right here at the lodge and I will be working with Salmon River legendary rod builder and fish smoker Bart! Bart will be offering smoked fish $25/fish vacuum packed. New this year, Bart can make Salmon Sausage ($9.00/ pound) and/ or Smoked Salmon Spread ($9.00/ pound) for your enjoyment. And of course you may purchase one of Bart's famous custom made rods right here through the lodge.
