Lived in down-state Idaho at the time, now in Michigan. We chose dinner trip, Labor Day weekend 2012. ('12 not available in date bracket so chose '13: they should give more options) Casual, relaxing and scenic.

I've flyfished this river for years. After a low from overfishing a few years back, the river has come back strong. Be sure to practice Catch & Release to ensure good fishing for the future. Nice fat native browns are yours to be had here. Use orange double humpy with a zebra midge dropper for optimal results.

Enjoyed a day floating down the St. Joe river with guide, Nick, who's passion for fly fishing is evident. He patiently showed us some basic skills and skillfully guided us into areas where they were biting. Really fun day! Thanks Nick!

The 6 hour river cruise has beautiful scenery. For a relaxing afternoon soaking up some sun, chatting with family or friends, or just relaxing this is great. Plan accordingly if you take children. 6 hours will need some additional entertainment, and snacks. They did allow people to bring their own food, and the bar had chips and candy for sale.... More

We took the Sunday 1/2 day boat trip from CDA up St. Joe river. Buy the lunch option. Bring sun screen and a hat. Just a very beautiful experience. A must do when visiting CDA.

It is called the"Shadowy St. Joe". Looks like the Idaho version of the bayou. Ideal for small boat or canoe exploring. Empties into Lake CoeurD'Alene. Good picnic spots and Heyburn State Park is very nice.

In the fall you could not have a more beautiful boat ride down the St Joe. Fall colors are amazing and lots to look at. Fun to go to loggers day

The St Joe tumbles down from some really primitive area from the high mtn peaks between Idaho and Montana down through St Maries and empties into Lake Coeur d alene. There are several nice campgrounds along the river.
