There is a nice upscale lodge in NE Utah with guided trout fishing where nonfishing spouses stay free, including food. Anyone else know of such a place out west--I am interested in fishing more out there, and occasionally would like to bring my wife, as long as the area is one of natural beuty---as most are. Or where the nonfishing spouse gets a deal, anyway. Thanks.:)
What species are you after?

any Salmonids, really. Or for that matter, if the area is pretty enough and the fishing is good, even the other northern species--Pike, Lake Trout, Greyling, etc. But mostly I was thinking classic western/Canadian trout fishing with fly rods. Never tried Salmon or Steelhead but would be willing. Thanks!
At the top of my list would be henry's fork lodge; call nelson at 208.558.7953
Also the Canadian Rockies near Banff / Calgary - inquire with member Frenchcreek about that (send a PM)
If you want to try for some salmonids hook up with Brian Niska at Whistlerflyfishing.com (a sponsor) for that cool Whistler experience and some great fishing opportunities nearby.
For something completely different how about a few days at Tofino BC on the outer Vancouver Island coast fishing for feeder coho salmon among whales between soakings in the hot tubs and fine dining in the waterfront accomodations.
The lodges in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and the rest of the American west are plentiful and too numerous to list.
Let me point out something in the east... a true natural marvel called the Gaspe' peninsula where magnificent atlantic salmon are found in jewel-clear flows. The accomodations are superb in places like Glen LeGrand's Camp Bonaventure where the help outnumber the guests, first class. Our own Ann Smith of Quebec Sporting can make arrangments for you as she will be for a group of us this summer, my second time there since moving from Seattle and I can't wait.
Just to make the list complete, a winter or spring trip to Grand Bahama Island for bonefish would be a good couples outing - we are scouting things out for such a clave in the future.

And if anyone knows of any others, especially which cater to wives as well, whether sponsor or not, please pm me. Thanks!:)
