Hunting & Fishing
Spring turkey, late summer bow hunting, big game in the fall? Yes, McCall and our surrounding mountains are legendary for annual hunting trips and the tales of the hunt around the fire. Our local Fish and Game Department can assist you with any questions, and most of our retailers sell tags as well as any equipment you may need.
Without a doubt, uncrowded fishing is one of the best things about living in McCall. Fish for cutthroat trout, Chinook salmon, steelhead, rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, Kokanee, crappie, yellow perch and more in the diverse rivers and lakes throughout the area.

These lakes range from easy short hikes to advanced get your heart going hikes. Lots of site fishing opportunity on these lakes. Some lakes we are able to drive to and launch a drift boat.
