Kelly Creek Outing

Date and Time



2023 Kelly Creek Outing

Date  August 11-13

Host::  John Hudson ( preferred method of contact).  Cell #509-413-7482.

Check in upon arrival, and leave at your leisure.

Directions: There are two ways to get there one via I-90 to Superior, Mt then over Hoodoo Pass on forest service roads.The other way is through Orofino, ID. To Pierce then on the forest road. This is the longer way but the road is usually better. It’s a washboard road either way you come to the campsite. It will take 4  to 6 hours to get there depending on what type of rig you’re in. I tow a 25.5 foot fifth wheel and have no problems with access.

 Special Note: If you are unfamiliar with an outing location, be sure to have a paper map with you, along with these instructions. Smartphone apps like Waze and Google maps are great, but don’t rely on them 100% and there is no service anywhere near your destination.

Campsite: We will be camping at Kelly Forks Campground which is the confluence of Kelly Creek and the North Fork of the Clearwater River. Good water and clean restrooms with shady campsites. Tents and light  or smaller trailers  are the norm. Reservations have not been required for the last couple of years but it might not be a good idea since post covid activity may be higher. 

Flies: Parachute  Adams size 16-18, Purple Haze size 16-18, Elk hair Caddis size 12-14. Red ants, and Hoppers Deer or Elk hair preferred.  Bring an assortment-every year varies.

Meals: Meat provided by the club. Potluck on Saturday night potluck A-F bring desserts, G-N bring side dishes, and O-Z bring salads.
