The Snake River in eastern Oregon and western Idaho is as rich in possibilities for fishing as it is in other recreational opportunities.  From sturgeon to trout, bass to catfish, native and stocked game fish species abound.  Interested anglers can explore the websites of Idaho Fish and Game and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to learn about purchasing a fishing license, seasonal restrictions, bag limits, and other rules and regulations.  You can also peruse their websites to find recent fishing reports, stocking schedules, and fishing education programs.

Check back on our website as we continue to add details about our Water Trail reaches.  Ultimately, we will have specific information about fishing, river accesses, and recreational activities listed under each reach.

2 states. 206 miles. 1 river.

The Idaho Oregon Snake River Water Trail Coalition is a 206 mile water trail along the Snake River in Southwest Idaho and Eastern Oregon for people to explore, respect and enjoy. A water trail is a water route that provides recreational and educational opportunities for motorized and non-motorized boaters and commercial opportunities for river communities. This trail begins at Three Island Crossing State Park, Idaho and ends at Farewell Bend State Park, Oregon.

Our mission:  The Idaho-Oregon Snake River Water Trail promotes river access and recreational opportunities that benefit communities, tourism and preservation of natural and cultural resources through a network of partnerships.
