Spoke also yesterday with Dan (nMilo) R. about fishing on the Lochsa River in Idaho in July. Come and join us. Go to the Idaho Fly Fishers Trip Page. He is one of our local in house experts concerning Idaho waters. He said that by mid June, the waters should clear but still be high. By early July the waters should begin to recede. Right now the snow pack is still 150% of normal and water concentration due to high altitude ice is still 175% of normal. Remember Schweitzer Ski Area received 440" of snow this year.
Hopefully our Idaho fly fishing season will begin soon and that the waters have recouped after last year's drought and the fish will be almost back to normal, but I fully expect the numbers and size to be slightly less than in recent years.
Hard takes, tight lines, screaming reels and sore arms to all.
