wtl, what many around here don't realize is that October thru April is the best season for trout where I live. Too many fair-weather anglers give it up when it gets cold. We love it! All of our favorite waters are open year 'round and there are no crowds. In fact, we rarely see other anglers wherever we go. In addition to no crowds, we usually catch our biggest and the most fish during the winter season.

Come on out, you're welcome anytime.

mcnerney and diamond rush like this.

Beautiful fish and pictures! It looks like you were amply rewarded for braving the nasty weather.

Now if only the wind would quit for awhile so I can get out again........ (I am kind of a whimp!...shhhhh don't tell.)

Sounds great Kelly. I might actually be heading back to the northwest some time this summer. I fished the lochsa for a brief bit in august, nice country.

Now this is what cold-weather flyfishing looks like!
