great water, especially above Calder. so wonderful when you get above crazy boating traffic. Look 4 rock barbs sticking out into river, they are unnatural fish holding areas.

We have a log home on the river and have spent many weeks there. The Joe is one of most wonderful places to spend a relaxing vacation. The beauty of the river is awesome in any season. Fly fishing for the native cutthroat is a thrilling experience which can be found all along the Joe. No matter what your reasons... More

The St. Joe River is one of the best fly fishing destinations for cutthroat trout in the United States. Scenic Drive, beautiful forest, emerald green waters and plenty of access for the avid fisherman.

While I am not expert in the region I will share that is river valley is majestic and breath taking. Keep your eye open, wild life abound especially in the early and late sun hours. This river valley has deep history in logging, and some mining. If you 4x4 ATV plenty of tremendous logging road to explore. This river is... More

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. Are planning on taking again this summer (2014) with two other couples from Michigan ( We are all early '70's). Does that tell you... More

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.
