Hidden Gem River, ID


Idaho Fly Fishers Blog

Never heard of it. This river in north Idaho is a "Hidden Gem". If you believe the internet, there are no trout in this water this time of year because the water is too warm. Hog wash! They say the state record brookie is here and it may be. Supposedly, there are no rainbow above a certain point. I can personally assure you this is NOT true.

I have caught many a rainbow here even in July and August. Most are in the 10"-12" range, but in the spring and fall, I have caught some 18"ers. Down low, even in the heat of the summer, there are some "hog" size cutties. The secret is to fish early and late (fish the shadows) this time of year.

Black Crawlers, which you will not see in any fly shop, and Golden Stones also work very well. I literally saw dozens of stone shucks the other day after one cool night. The technique is simple, dead drift, twitch occasionally, swing across current at the end of drift, twitch occasionally, and let flies hang at drift's end, again twitching occasionally. Recast.

If you want some decent action and no combat fishing, come and fish this river in the summer. If you would like to know the name of this north Idaho secret and the best places to fish, please email me.

Hard takes, tight lines, numerous trout and sore arms forever.
