Hopper Time

By | Fishing Forecast, Fishing Report

As we close in on the fall we can look back at the this as the summer without the August doldrums. Our heavy spring rains kept our fishing blue ribbon right through the hottest time of the year, when we generally see a drop-off in fish numbers getting caught. With September coming, expect more great fishing. We will begin seeing…

I gotta bite!

By | Fishing Forecast, Fishing Report

The valley is moving back into a thunderstorm laced week. The temperatures will stay warm and the increased cloud cover should both, spark great insect activity, and at times put a damper on existing bug activity.

Angling is an Art

By | Fishing Forecast, Fishing Report

A cool June continues to blanket south central Idaho. This has made the fishing interesting to say the least. Silver Creek continues to fish well despite cooler days and the occasional thunder storm. The Big Wood has cleared up a bit and the spotty fishing can be very good. The Lost continues to run high and the South Fork of…

Drakes

By | Fishing Forecast, Fishing Report

Picabo Bridge to Hwy 20 The Brown Drakes have made an early debut and rewarded those on early recognizant scouting missions. Fill up the gas tank and grab your headlamp; cooler temps will keep the hatch in flux and reward those that stay long past sunset. The Point of Rocks and Willows areas will see a lot of pressure, but…
