Great Idaho Fly Fishing Day

We (IDFFA member Kevin FP Old and I) had another great day yesterday fly fishing Idaho's "Mighty River". The fish sizes were not what they were a week ago, but the numbers were good. Our catch included mostly rainbows with a cutthroat and white fish thrown in for good measure. Nothing on top yet, but we expect the hoppers any day now. Anticipate 100 degrees within a week.

Idaho Fly Fishers BlogFlies of the day were the golden stone and black crawler. There were a few BWO's, but not enough to re-rig for in my opinion. PS did pick up a large caddis larva (#6) just as we were leaving yesterday. Personally, I am going to borrow a few horse tail hairs from our Fjords and tie as a darker brown to match the locals.
 

The day was brilliant with just a little westerly breeze. A rare cloud in the sky afforded red faces and arms. It actually got quite warm towards the end of the day. We did cheat a little yesterday and took FP's motorized aluminum canoe, so we did not burn as many calories as rowing last week. But I must admit it was a lot easier.

One of the great things about our last two outings was the lack of company. Last week we saw no one on our 17 mile float; this week did produce one jet boat, one canoe and one zodiac with its sole fisherman. "Combat fishing" never here. One of the great things about north Idaho. To the south however, this time of year, there are many more vacation fishers. That's okay though, just getting out is really great.

Come and fly fish Idaho with us very soon. Hard takes and tight lines.
