St. Joe up high - No pressure
Well, it's January 14th and time to begin thinking about Idaho fly fishing for trout. We at the IDFFA have two great trips planned this year. One to the St. Joe in August and one to the Missouri in late September. Granted the St. Joe is in Idaho, but the Missouri begins in Montana and ends, I believe some 3,600 miles later, by dumping into the Mississippi River in St. Louis in Missouri. Err the name. So one is in Montana and not Idaho--no one is perfect. Our members like diversity.

August on the Joe should be great! Snow melt will be gone and the water still cold. The cutthroat trout are always ravenous and will bite almost anything. One does need to "match the hatch" when one is happening, but otherwise try a Stimulator, YSF Stinger, Adams or Purple Haze.

Now September on the Missouri may be different. The cooler mornings may be a stimulation to those big browns to begin their pre-spawn feed. My suspicion is larger fish down deep so my pick for flies will be streamers. That is a YSF Assam (in dark brown or olive), large Montana Stonefly Nymphs (dark or golden), large Montana Sparrows, large Wooly Buggers, large Skunk Hair Caddis and perhaps even (that time of year) large Wooly Worms will be the ticket for those large brown. Really, don't forget Wooly Worms on the Missouri in September.

St. Joe Cuttie
Why don't you come and join the IDFFA for some great western fly fishing. I believe the Missouri trip is full but not yet the Joe. You could always get onto the alternate list for the Missouri though. There are always some last minute cancellations. Hard takes, tight lines, bent rods and screaming reels to you all.
