Our friend Matt LaBounty stopped in to borrow a Water Master the other day and made good use of it on his last trip east. Thanks for sharing Matt.
I have friends who live and grew up in Wallace Idaho. After years of talking about good trout fishing and 10 lbs bull trout on streamers while I lived in Seattle. Twelve years ago I started fishing with them on their home waters. This last year I finally hit it right. Although some years have been slow, I have never had a reason to not return. The past eleven years we have exclusively waded though brush to access the river and stumble along rocks to reach our favorite holes. Last week each afternoon I passed on the hiking and floated the very skinny waters in a raft. I was able to save my shines a bit from the brush and see/find holes I hadn’t in the past.
If you haven’t fished this area try find some time, hit the road, float or walk, and be prepared, you might run into a Moose, an Elk or spook the occasional bear while you fish for cutty’s, brown trout, bull Trout in the country made for the fly angler.
