    GRRRRRRRREAT!!! Oliver, Chandler and the entire staff did not disappoint any of our group of 14! We came from Birmingham, Palm Springs, up state New York, Louisville, Los Angeles,Charlotte ,Albquerque,Beverly Hills, and Pittsburg. just to fish at South Fork. No one was disappointed The rooms were beyond expectation. Large fireplace, jacuzzi, shower (great water pressure) , large plush towels, great bed, plenty of closet space and a comfortable porch over looking the river, with chairs and table. Food and drink. "Sadie" is the best guide I have ever had in a bar! Try her Mexican Mule with fresh grated ginger and her friendly enthusiasm. Food is also terrific- made to order breakfast, lunch on the water and specialties for dinner every night and home made deserts. Oh yes we came to fish. We had a total of about 8 different guides. Not one complaint. They are so accommodating, not just a boat ride. They were on it-they know each section of the river like the back of their hands. They were constantly re-evaluating what we were fishing with changing set ups to match changing conditions, wind,water, sun,clouds and hatch. I am 77, I have never seen such scenery, this area is up to a Yosemite standard., without bus tours and crowds. I kept thinking I would see a dinosaur. The old expression "the fish stinks from the head down" applies here. Oliver has a great aroma and so does his entire staff. This is not a paid post. Go there you will not be disappointed. Stu 5 stars is not enough

    3 years ago I responded poorly to the SouthFork Lodge writing a 1 star review. I am unable to delete this and want to say since that time Zack in the flyshop has gone out of his way to accommodate all my flyfishing needs. Specifically Zack has been extremely professional and courteous. They have the best guide I have ever used, Mike Bean and the best flies in the area...big dries, small dries and an incredible array of streamers.. I could not be more apologetic in my immediate emotional response back then. Please consider this review as representative of how well they deal with all customers, but satisfied and dissatisfied.

    Made the trip from Jackson to South Fork Lodge for dinner. I cannot overstate how wonderful and welcoming the staff were to our family. The lodge is beautiful and the dinner was A+ too! Thanks for the hospitality and taking care of our cowgirl!

    Absolutely, hands down a divine place. The atmosphere is just like you would imagine, rustic authentic lodge, the staff go above and beyond in every capacity. The bar is fun, lively, and great drinks. The views are spectacular. And the fishing guides are knowledgeable of the Snake River, and its surroundings and a hoot to spend the days with.
