Fly Fishing Idaho
by Bill Mason (No Nonsense Fly Fishing Guidebooks)
Fishing in Idaho during April, May, and early June can be limited by area closures or unfavorable water conditions. The Hagerman area presents a unique water situation that solves this seasonal dilemma. In some stretches the spring water is almost too pure, and aquatic insect populations suffer. Trout rarely grow over 16 inches in this water. In areas that are not entirely spring-fed, larger trout can be found. The toughest part about fishing this area is finding the waters. Traveling the farm roads of southern Idaho is not always easy.
Types of Fish: Rainbow and a few browns in the Snake River. This trail guide covers the “where, when, and how: to fish in this region. You’ll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use.
