Golf is a year-round sport in the Lewis Clark Valley. While the surrounding region is covered in snow, the Lewis Clark Valley residents are hitting the links just about everyday. Gather your buddies and spend a few days working on your handicap. We have four courses (one private and three public) from which to choose. And don’t forget to stop by Gateway Golf Center, pro shop, teaching and practice facility overlooking the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake rivers. Each course has its own unique personality and is equally challenging.
Jet Boat Tours
A must when visiting the Lewis Clark Valley (between March and November) is a jet boat trip in Hells Canyon. Jet boat captains will regale you with tales of pioneer adventures, mining lore and Nez Perce stories. The tour stops at key points along the way to view ancient petroglyphs, a shipwreck site and Kirkwood Ranch where artifacts and photographs reflecting the history of the area are housed. LEARN MORE >

Fishing & Hunting
Few places offer the variety and accessibility of outdoor diversions that are found right in our backyard. You don’t even have to leave town to find some of the best fishing spots for trolling, spinning, bait casting and fly-fishing. Located within a few miles of the downtown areas are five public boat ramps and two marinas. The spring and summer months fast action catch is bass and trout. During the fall it is steelhead. The canyon has a healthy number of North America’s largest fresh water fish, the great white sturgeon, which can reach lengths up to 18 feet. You can’t take one home but catching one could be the highlight of your trip. LEARN MORE >
