Imagine, Explore, Fish

Sun Valley is surrounded by many of the finest and most breathtaking trout streams in the world. And a stop at Silver Creek Outfitters puts the majesty of these waters at your fingertips. Silver Creek Outfitters, a tradition in the Wood River Valley for more than 45 years, evolved from a small fly shop to the highly respected retailer and outfitter it is today. By providing the best guides in the business, a highly knowledgeable retail staff and the finest gear in the industry, the store creates lifelong memories for fishermen of all abilities and offers an unparalleled customer experience.

Whether you are visiting and want to fish with the best guides in the area, or simply need advice on the latest hatch or a new rod, Silver Creek Outfitters takes care of all of your needs. Additionally, the fly shop supports a travel department that specializes in booking excursions to the best fishing locations on the planet.

A true Sun Valley destination, not just a store, Silver Creek Outfitters also boasts a library complete with the most important fly fishing titles, a beautiful selection of unique gifts and artwork, and clothing and accessories appropriate for a day on the river or a night on the town.

"We invite people in our home here, we want to share our love for this place with you" said Terry Ring, owner of Silver Creek Outfitters. "We realize that customer service is not what we think it is, but what the customer perceives it to be. We continuously strive to provide the highest level of service possible."

This level of personal attention, devotion to detail and tradition are what set Silver Creek Outfitters apart. For more information about the store, to inquire about special events and sales, to see our hatch charts or to subscribe to the weekly Fishing Report, please log onto
