Fish the Eclipse Idaho

Fish the Eclipse!

Bait while you wait! The Eclipse’s path through Idaho includes some of the best freshwater fishing in the West. While you’re waiting for two minutes of total darkness, explore the fishing nearest you.


Let’s Go Fishing Interactive Map

Use this interactive map to find out where to go fishing along the path of totality, the area of complete darkness when the eclipse occurs. The map is divided into four regions of the state that will be in the path of eclipse.

You’ll find a variety of fishing, ranging from bluegill in easily accessed ponds to decades-old sturgeon in the Snake River to wily trout in Idaho's high mountain lakes.

Take some time to go fishing before and after the eclipse, and make it a total adventure.
