Spring Flyng 2012



"Spring Flyng 2012" prepared by YellowStoneFly of the Idaho Fly Fishers. Driving south today from the panhandle of Idaho one couldn't help but notice that spring is here. The runoff has definitely begun. Rivers seem to be pouring out of the hillsides everywhere. The lakes are beginning to fill. The streams and rivers are beginning to over flow their banks. Even the ice fishers are conspicuously absent. I wouldn't go out on the ice right now either.

Before you know it the Idaho fly fishing season will be upon us. Oh yeah, don't forget to get your 2012 license. Time to get out the rods and dust them off. Oil your reels. Clean your fly lines. Begin tying your favorite patterns or visit your local fly shop. Considering the stream flows I would begin with woolies or San Juan worms. Make sure you get them deep even if you have to use sinking line. Don't forget a few split shots as well.

But before you know it, the cutties will be hitting brown drakes and PMD's. So make sure you have some good floatant as well. For information regarding fly fishing Idaho and her rivers, go to our QuickView blog post page. You've got to come and fish some of our great rivers this year. Some of the photos here just might get you in the mood. Whether you fish our big waters like the Coeur d'Alene, Clark Fork, Clearwater, Kootenai  or smaller streams like Lightening Creek, Moyie, St. Joe and Priest, you will surely find a riffle to fit your fancy.

Happy Idaho fly fishing!
