The Lodge at Palisades Creek Location

The Lodge at Palisades Creek is positioned along the banks of the South Fork of the Snake River in Irwin, Idaho. We are a short drive from either Jackson Hole, Wyoming or alternatively Idaho Falls, Idaho. We do offer pick- up services from the Jackson or Idaho Falls airports.

The South Fork is an extremely productive fishery, offering native Snake River Cutthroat, Rainbow, Hybrid (Cut Bow), and Brown trout. We often catch fish over 20 inches, but most fish fall in the 14-17 inch range. The South Fork is a year round tail water river with the Lodge operating from the early May into mid-November.

The Lodge offers a full fly shop with fishing rods, reel and lines, leaders, tippets, and a wide and comprehensive fly selection.  To add comfort, the shop offers sun screen, bug spray, hats, shirts, t-shirts, jackets, waders, wading shoes, cigars and drinks. Wonderful housekeeping and grounds keeping crews add to your experience.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1520″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gmaps link=”#E-8_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” size=”350″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
