On a whim about 10 days ago, I decided to do a few hours of wade fishing on the CDA on a dreary Saturday. Drizzly rain and around 50 degrees. Someone told me they had had flurries in Prichard, ID the day before--now that would be June. Awoke early and drove over from NE Washington. Only took about an hour to get over the pass and to Kellogg. Another 15 minutes and I was in the quaint town of Wallace right on I-90 where "Dante's Peak" was mostly filmed.

There was nothing on top that cloudy, rainy, dreary morning, but did real well with my own version of an olive Assam Dragon (YSF Assam). Try adding a little flash to marabou tail for better effect. Multiple 12"-14" size cutties. Actually hooked a hog in one pool which ran into my backing twice then threw my fly--darn those crimped down barbless hooks. Never even saw the fish. And by the way the red firs with their new growth were the softest looking I have ever seen.

average NF CDA cuttie.
Hard takes and tight lines forever. Come and fly fish with us in Idaho. Idaho fly fishing this summer promises to be excellent.
