Clearwater River

Bureau of Land Management, Idaho.

The Clearwater River is a world-renowned salmon and steelhead fishery that attracts anglers from around the world. The BLM manages portions of the land on the main stem of the Clearwater River as well as three recreation sites: Harpers Bend, McKay's Bend, and Pink House. More information regarding the amenities at these sites, such as boat ramps or camping, is available below in the Quick Links section of this website.

The Northwest Discovery Water Trail is the first 40-mile reach of the Clearwater River from Canoe Camp to the confluence with the Snake River in Lewiston, Idaho. The Lewis and Clark National Historical Trail also follows the river from Greer, Idaho to the confluence with the Snake River. In addition, the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway follows the Clearwater River from Grangeville, Idaho downriver to Lewiston, Idaho.
