Not only are you showing nice streams but the pictures are so crisp, so clear! Beautiful places posted by all, I'm way behind on getting something up but will blame it on the salmon. I have a really hard time focusing on trout when the salmon start in late May / early June. That may sound lame but the big fish can become a haunting of the mind. I do catch quite a few trout but they occur while I'm swinging salmon flies and I just let em go quick and get back on target. I'll hit my little creek down the road soon and post.
I think I'll add a couple of my favorites from the southeast Idaho area. Although I haven't yet been able to get out on anything due to the ankle surgery, I still dream of these waters and hope to hit them all by the end of the year.
This first one is a favorite Fall/Winter/Spring river that we fish - contains resident Rainbows, Brookies and sometimes some Kokanee escapees, along with a protected strain of mountain whitefish:
This next one is one we fish during the later summer after runoff. It requires a hike, but not too tough - contains resident Cutthroats and a returning spawn of Kokanee:
And, last of all, one of my favorite winter destinations, although it fishes well year 'round - contains resident brookies and bows, but they don't grow very large:
A true double!:
Well, that's it for me and my favorite small waters. Thanks for letting me play along.
I just did a back cast and saw your pictures, great looking spot! If I could pry myself away from the salmon rivers I would take some pictures of some of the creeks around here. It's tough, when those big fish are in they're all I can think about. Years ago my fishing buddy and I used to talk about someday being somewhere fishing where the fish were all big. I made it and I got hooked. It is messing with my dry fly tying. I made some Royal Wulff's the other day on fine wire salmon hooks in size 8 and was wondering how the heck I tied all those size 20's for all those years. The big hooks spoil you as much as any fish could, they are so easy to tie.
Keep the reports and pictures coming fellas I am reliving a lot of travels by looking at them all
