Hi there (YellowStoneFly),
Montana Brown

I stumbled across your website and liked the vibe right away.  I have a timeshare at Stoneridge a Resort (near Spirit Lake, ID) that I have never visited.  I've always used it as a trade. I'd love to explore the area and do some fly fishing anywhere nearby (50 mile or more radius). Any suggestions? I would welcome recommendations for guides in the area too!

Thanks so much!  I rode my bike through Glacier and Watertown National park many years ago when cycling from Jasper Alberta to Steamboat Springs CO. Great memories of Idaho!!

Take care.....

Dear JW,

You are not located that close to the action at Stoneridge, but I can make some suggestions. Probably the best would be for native redband rainbow on the Spokane River. The river is hard to fish by wade due to massive boulders. The guides like to fish the Spokane-Rathdrum aquifer which begins directly behind the Spokane Valley Mall. A really great guide for the Spokane is Randy Dingman.

The only other fair river within your driving range would be the Priest River, but I would fish it down near the mouth where it dumps into the Pend O'Reille River just east of the town of Priest River. In July/August the water is too hot if you fish up near the lake. Some really good, cold water rivers past your 50 mile range would be the NF of the Coeur d'Alene, the St. Joe, and my summertime favorite is the Montana/Idaho section of the Kootenai.

Randy Dingman is a great guide for the NF of the CDA and the St. Joe. For the Kootenai I would recommend Dave Blackburn. If you will look in the upper left of each of my blog pages, you will find a search box. Simply type in any Idaho fly fishing subject you need and enter. We have subject matter from fly tying and favorite flies to your favorite rivers and lakes. Enjoy.

Hard takes, tight lines, bent rods, screaming reels and sore shoulders to you always.
