Fish Fry Anyone?

Idaho Fly Fishers Blog
Big Fisher Lake, Boundary County, Idaho (elev. 7,380 feet)
The evolution of a fish: egg, larva, fry, fingerling and adult. This past Saturday, a new member of the Selkirk Valley Back Country Horsemen arrived at the Cabinet Gorge Hatchery in Clark Fork Idaho, and picked up hundreds of fry in a large cooler for transport to Trout and Big Fisher Lakes in Boundary County Idaho. The member then drove the 3 hours to the lake trailhead very near the Canadian border and then rode on a very short horse several hours up to the high mountain lakes.
Trusty Steed Walter (aka "Shorty")
Once there, the horsemen then went through the painstaking process of equalizing the temperature inside the bags of cutthroat trout fry and then released them while only losing a few in the process. Great job guys (and girls)!

Besides transporting fry to high country lakes for stocking (which, being an avid fly fisher, I fully support), the SVBC Horsemen also help to maintain bridges and trails in our National Forests by rebuilding & repairing the bridges and cutting down overhanging limbs on trails so even short horses can pass without difficulty. SVBC Horsemen is one of the 14 Idaho chapters of the Back Country Horsemen of Idaho and one of the 127 chapters of the Back Country Horsemen of America which has roughly 13,000 active members in 27 states.

Trout Lake, ID
Eat your heart out. We have pictured here views from Spruce Lake high in the Selkirk Mountain Range. There is Snow Lake, Trout Lake and Big Fisher Lake (elev.7,380 feet) all in Boundary County Idaho. Many are accessible only by horseback, so grab your fly rod and reel, and don't forget your float tube and fins, and go and do some real Idaho fly fishing at one of our numerous (stocked with huge cutties) high mountain lakes. Oxygen masks are optional, but the horse a must.

Next week for me, will fly fish Michele Creek and the Elk River in Fernie, British Columbia, Canada on Friday and Saturday; then the following week on to Queen Lake b/w Bonners Ferry and Eastport, ID on my trusty and very short steed Walter the Norwegian Fjord (proudly pictured above). Posts and photos to follow.

Hard takes, tight lines and huge trout to you all.
