These are the most important things an Idaho fly fisher can do. These are really important when the water is low and warm. Some do not worry about the catches of future generations. I DO!
 
Fly Fish Idaho: Flyfishing Flies; Fishing Flys; Flies Fishing: Fly Fishing; Fly Fishing Equipment; Fishing Flies; Fishing Gear; Trout Flies; Salmon Flies; Fly Fishing Idaho; Flies for Sale; Idaho Fly FishingHaving fly fished most of my adult life for trout, I have noticed significant reductions in numbers of trout and size. Idaho fly fishing pressure has really increased since I began. I would estimate that the number of fishers has at least tripled in the last 10 years and doubled in the last 3. Add shear numbers of anglers to the decrease in western snowfalls and decrease in the amount of spring precipitation and that equals fewer fish. The more fish caught decreases the number available to spawn and therefore fewer numbers that live and grow up to be big boys.

The more we catch, the more we unintentionally kill. The more small fish we kill, the fewer there are available to reach trophy size. It gets to be a vicious cycle.

But we can greatly change the numbers that reach spawning age. Unless you are starving. DO NOT KEEP THE FISH YOU CATCH. Also, be forever aware of the warmer, slow moving waters you do fish. Keep your fights short, use barbless and release as quickly as possible.

Hard takes and tight lines to all of our Idaho fly fishers.
