Fishing the Clearwater River

Orofino Idaho was founded in the late 1800’s after gold was discovered in the area, hence the name Orofino which means fine ore. Nestled in the shadow of 720ft high Dworshak Dam this small logging community is located 40 miles East of Lewiston, Idaho on the world famous Clearwater River. Orofino has much to offer: you can go explore the 57mile long Dworshak reservoir, take a tour of Dworshak national fish hatchery (the largest steelhead hatchery in the world), or take a short drive or hike to the surrounding areas and see lots of wildlife.
