Lightning Creek, ID - Easter 2011

"Lightning Creek, ID - Easter 2011" contributed by YellowStoneFly at the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog. Come fly fish Idaho and visit this great freestone river just north of Clark Fork, ID in the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Area. Just bought a new fishing car. Its a 1969 vintage Land Rover IIA. Thought I would check it out in the snow in the wilderness area and it did great. My wife and I drove up about 10 miles above town and it was beautiful. Talk about water as clear as gin. Unbelievable! The brown, black, grey, yellow, orange and white river bed rocks shown like a muted rippling rainbow in the river bottom. The first forest service road sign we came to was the grizzly warning. It was about 5 miles up Lightning Creek Road.

The next sign we encountered was the "Bull Trout Country" sign shown here. Idaho is very protective of its bulls and rightfully so. When you come to fly fish Idaho one day, make sure you know the difference between the brookie and the bull. They do look very similar and are adequately described in the Idaho Fish & Game booklet, which you should pick up when you purchase your license. By the way, Lightning Creek and all north Idaho streams and rivers are now OPEN YEAR ROUND. For fly suggestions, go to the "Western Fly Hatches" post in this blog. 

Spring at last - Easter 2011
Now enjoy these photos of this wonderful wading western trout stream in northern Idaho. Click on the photos for the full effect. For other popular western fishing waters go to Rivers of Idaho (& the Northwest) at the Idaho Fly Fishers Association website.
